President Kersti Kaljulaid has visited Madrid on the occasion of the centenary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Estonia and Spain in 1921.

On such a significant date as International Women’s Day, which UN Women is dedicating to “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world” this year, we were honoured to host one of the only 20 female Heads of State and Government worldwide.
