Prior to Estonian parliamentary election on 3 March, the leading candidates of the major parties are to discuss their manifestos at an open debate on 8 February at the Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel; registration for the event is now open.
Organised by the AmCham Estonia (American Chamber of Commerce Estonia) and Meta Advisory Group (a government relations and public affairs firm), the political debate, conducted in English, will have almost all major Estonian parties represented. Estonian World and the BECC (the British-Estonian Chamber of Commerce) will be partners of the event.
Debaters are Taavi Rõivas for the Reform Party, Priit Alamäe for Eesti 200, Rene Tammist for the Social Democrats, Raimond Kaljulaid for the Centre Party, Mart Luik for Pro Patria (Isamaa), Martin Helme for the Conservative People’s Party of Estonia (EKRE) and Neeme Kuningas for Vabaerakond. The exclusive discussion will be moderated by Andreas Kaju, a cofounder of Meta Advisory.
The audience can also participate
The debate aims to find out about the political strategies and manifestos of the political parties involved. It will also pose the question, who will put together the new government and what will its agenda look like.
“We will push our panellists hard on the policy priorities of our members and host a Q&A session with the Slido app to get questions from the audience in as well. This will be the premier political event for all foreign businesses in Estonia before the elections and your chance to know more,” Daria Sivovol, the CEO of AmCham Estonia, told Estonian World.
“Early bird” registration for the event is now open – the fee is €35 per person and includes a plentiful lunch buffet by the Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel, a shiny new establishment in the city centre of the Estonian capital.
