Our responsibilities related to the presidency will confer on us the role of spokesperson for the Council of the EU. We will be attracting significantly more attention than we ever have thus far, both in Europe and on the international scene. This is an excellent opportunity to show who we are and what we can do. 

In addition to fulfilling the role of the Council presidency in Brussels, a major task is the organisation of events in Estonia. Particular focus will be put on approximately 20 high-level events, including 10 unofficial ministerial meetings. The Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union's main venue is the Tallinn Creative Hub.

Those events will provide us with an opportunity to raise issues and initiate discussions on the main themes of the Estonian presidency by involving opinion leaders from across Europe. At the same time we can introduce our country and our solutions at these meetings, conferences and visits to a very broad audience.
