On Thursday morning, President Iohannis will start at Stenbock House, where he will meet with Prime Minister Kaja Kallas and then Speaker of the Riigikogu Jüri Ratas and lay a wreath to the Monument to the War of Independence at Vabaduse Square.

During the day, the Romanian Head of State will also meet with the Mayor of Tallinn, Mihhail Kõlvart, visit the e-Estonia Presentation Center and the HK Unicorn Squad, a robotics and technology school for girls located in the Rakett69  science studio.

"The visit of the President of Romania to Estonia has been planned for a long time and fits well with the time when we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Estonia and Romania. Romania is a like-minded partner and ally of Estonia in important foreign and security issues, and we also actively cooperate within the framework of the Three Seas Initiative. The purpose of the state visit is to deepen practical cooperation in defense, education and digital issues and to give impetus to economic relations, "said Lauri Kuusing, Foreign Adviser to President Kaljulaid.

A state visit is the most solemn form of communication between the two countries. As a rule, the President of the Republic of Estonia makes 1-2 state visits and hosts the same number of others.
