Prime Minister Sanna Marin will make her first visit as Prime Minister to Sweden on Wednesday 8 January and to Estonia on Friday 10 January.

Prime Minister Marin will meet with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven in Harpsund, Sweden and with Estonian Prime Minister Jüri Ratas in Tallinn.

In their meetings, the Prime Ministers will focus on bilateral relations between their countries and matters related to the Baltic Sea region, including environmental protection, along with European security and topical international issues. Multilateral issues will also be addressed in the light of Estonia’s status as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council in 2020–2021.

Marin’s meetings with both Prime Ministers will also involve more detailed discussions of EU issues, such as progress on the EU’s climate objectives, the multiannual financial framework and the enlargement of the Union.

In Tallinn, Prime Minister Marin will make a courtesy visit to President Kersti Kaljulaid.
