We are very pleased, after two years of virtual events, to be able to organize Estonian National Day reception again physically in Abu Dhabi, and to combine it with Gulfood and IDEX 2023 trade fairs. This year we decided to organize it as Meet Estonia networking event to build on the excellent experiences of past years, in creating partnerships, and taking forward existing ones. While challenges such as the coronavirus pandemic and the global impacts of the invasion by Russia in Ukraine have serious impacts on world economy, we are now more determined than ever to find ways to make business thrive. We want you to benefit from Meet Estonia reception in concrete ways, in terms of contacts, information and business leads. Together with our Embassy and Enterprise Estonia team, we look forward to engaging with you on 22 February in Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Abu Dhabi.
