The formal opening ceremony was held in the historic town hall of Wrocław with the participation of Jacek Sutryk, the Mayor of Wrocław. Following the opening ceremony, an event for Polish startups about digital opportunities in Estonia took place. The event also marked the fifth anniversary of Estonia's e-Residency programme.
