Estonia’s Honorary Consul in Wrocław is Waldemar Jan Siemiński.
According to Seilenthal, the consulate will help boost relations between Estonia and Poland. “Opening the Honorary Consul’s Office helps advance Estonian economic interests in Lower Silesia, provides an opportunity to introduce Estonian culture in this part of Poland, and makes it possible to provide consular assistance to citizens if needed,” Seilenthal added.
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.
