On Monday 4 March, the new Estonian Ambassador to Croatia Eva-Maria Liimets presented her credentials to President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic in Zagreb. Ambassador Liimets will reside in Prague in the Czech Republic.
In the conversation following the presentation ceremony, both Liimets as well as Grabar-Kitarovic affirmed that the relations between the two countries are good, and stated their shared desire to raise the profile of their respective countries among young people and the general public to enhance contacts between people.
“Estonians have found their way to the sunny Croatian resorts of Split and Dubrovnik. Estonia’s excellent reputation as an e-state facilitates business contacts and I hope that it will help us to showcase Estonia as a tourist destination and encourage Croatians to travel to Estonia more,” Ambassador Liimets said.
