Vision and proposals: to use the honorary consuls network for finding a reliable new candidates for the position of Honorary Consuls with the aim that by 2016 the flag of Estonia will be raised over the rest of the 193 countries throughout the world. My proposal is to set up the Estonian Senior Experts team with the co-operation of the Estonian respective institutions and with the assistance of the Ministry of Social Affairs, to assist in linking the retired senior expatriates and share their experience in their fields of profession, with companies and organizations in our various countries, by creating a website linked with the Honorary Consuls website. The following websites will provide a good example of the proposal www.pum.nl/home-en also www.pum.nl/content/services-en.

Recommendation: looking at 2011 MFA conference’s program which was very generous and full of cordial hospitality, I am suggesting to include during our visit to Tallinn in July 2014 a working period for the meetings with the representatives of companies and institutions which represent the most important and promising areas for international cooperation: Oil Shale (ENEFIT) – IT – Forestry Department – Timber Industry – Education (Representative of Universities) – Tourism (Travel Agencies) – Culture (representative of the Ministry of Culture) –Construction (MERKO – SKANSKA) to enable the Honorary Consuls to establish contacts and request information about cooperation possibilities.
