14.11.2016

Today, on 14 November, a business seminar takes place in London that focuses on e-residency and the Estonian financial technology. The event, organised in collaboration with the City of London, was opened by Ambassador Lauri Bambus.

Ambassador Bambus emphasised that the UK referendum has created a new reality that entrepreneurs have to take into account. At the same time he urged the audience to think outside the box and find new innovative solutions. “The changing environment makes us take steps that were just recently unthinkable. British businessmen should consider the opportunities of Estonian e-residency,” the Ambassador noted.

Counsellor  of Economic Affairs, Mare Tropp, brought out the good cooperation between Estonia and the City of London. “When we offered to organise an event to introduce Estonian e-solutions together, they immediately said yes,” the diplomat said.

Main speaker at the business seminar is Viljar Lubi, Deputy Secretary General for Economic Development of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications. E-residency is introduced by Kaspar Korjus from Enterprise Estonia. A business delegation consisting of 12 people from fintech and IT enterprises, law firms and the Financial Supervision Authority takes part of the event. The seminar is part of a trade mission conducted by the British-Estonian Chamber of Commerce (http://www.becc.ee/events/fintech/)
