The plan for the new embassy was revealed in Estonia’s Regional Strategy for Africa 2020-2030. In addition, the strategy enables a continued representation in the African Union in Ethiopia and the sending of an Estonian national expert to the delegation of the European Union, preferably in Kenya.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs also intends to support Estonian diplomats in their application for the External Action Service of the European Union in Africa, to intensify the exchange of diplomats with the other member states and to increase Estonia’s participation in civilian missions in Africa.
In addition, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs intends to further expand the network of honorary consuls in African countries.
In sub-Saharan Africa, non-resident Estonian ambassadors have been appointed to Ethiopia and Mali.
