The Three Seas Summit and Business Forum on 19-20 October will bring heads of state, leading business figures and senior officials from Europe and the United States to Estonia. The fifth presidential summit and third business forum will be held at the Creative Hub in Tallinn. More information is available on the official website of the summit.
For Estonia, the event is a foreign policy highlight that has the potential of making an important contribution to the development of Eastern and Central European states and the prosperity of more than 100 million people.
Objectives of the Summit
- Consolidation. The aim of the summit and business forum in Tallinn is to focus the activities of the developing initiative, to elaborate goals and decide how to move forward. Agreement is needed on practical outcomes. This requires a more extensive involvement of governments.
- Business forum. The Three Seas Business Forum is set to include up to 500 high-level participants. For practical outcomes, we will bring the business and political elite to the same table, and hold the business forum and presidential summit in parallel. The aim is to organise an excellent event with practical benefits for the projects and companies of the region, as well as for the investors.
- Smart connectivity. Implementing digital solutions increases the competitiveness of the Three Seas region. According to Estonia’s vision, infrastructure projects need to include the newest green technology and digital components.
- Progress report. Estonia will update the progress report of the Three Seas projects in time for the summit, assessing the progress made with the 48 priority projects agreed on by the 3SI states. The progress report will become an interactive and permanent part of the Three Seas website.
- Visibility and visual identity. We have created the permanent website 3seas.eu and registered the Three Seas logo at EUIPO to reinforce the visual identity of the Three Seas.
The activities of the Tallinn Summit and Business Forum will cover two main days, with introductory events and meetings held the previous day.

The Three Seas technical secretariat was created in March 2020 to ensure the smooth organisation of the next summit and business forum, and the general coordination of the Three Seas initiative. The technical secretariat will work from Tallinn until the end of the year. The member states of the initiative will then make a new decision on its tasks, further work processes and location.
