Foreign Minister Urmas Paet opened the Estonian Honorary Consulate in Geneva on Wednesday, 3 March. The new Estonian honorary consul in Geneva is Matteo Inaudi.
According to Paet, relations between Estonia and Switzerland are very good but there is room for improvement in economic relations. “The opening of the honorary consulate will give us an opportunity to further intensify Estonia-Switzerland relations in the economic, educational and cultural realms. As a lawyer specialising in the financial sector and banking, Estonia’s new honorary consul can help our entrepreneurs with matters of interest to them in Geneva,” said Paet. “Our new honorary consul can also help to promote contact between Estonia and Switzerland’s francophone cultural spaces,” he added. Estonia has two honorary consulates in Switzerland.
The new Estonian honorary consul’s consular region is Genève, Neuchâtel, Jura, Fribourg, Vaud and Valais. The honorary consulate is located at 5 avenue Léon-Gaud, 1206 Geneva, Switzerland. The honorary consulate can be reached by phone at +41 (0) 22 839 70 00, fax at +41 (0) 22 839 70 07, or email at the address .
