18 May 2012

Yesterday, 17 May, Foreign Ministry Undersecretary for Legal and Consular Affairs Lauri Bambus opened Estonia’s honorary consulate in Gdańsk. It is Estonia’s fourth honorary consulate in Poland. Estonia’s new honorary consul in Gdańsk is Tomasz Posadzki.

Foreign Ministry Undersecretary for Legal and Consular Affairs Lauri Bambus said that political, economic and cultural ties between Estonia and Poland are very good and close. “Poland is an important partner for Estonia, in terms of both historical experiences and security and foreign policy interests,” Bambus emphasised at the opening of the honorary consulate.

The undersecretary believes that the new Estonian honorary consul will help with creating even more close contacts between the countries and introducing Estonia in Poland. “For example, we are very interested in developing tourism and having more and more Poles find their way to Estonia,” said Bambus. “Although Poland is Estonia’s biggest trade partner among Central European countries, we would like to continue to expand economic and business contacts as well,” he added.

Bambus also pointed out that the honorary consul can provide help to Estonian citizens that may encounter problems and need aid while in the Pomeranian Voivodeship of Poland.

The consular region for the new Estonian honorary consul is the Pomeranian Voivodeship. The honorary consulate is located at Ul. Strzelecka 7 B, 80-803, Gdańsk. The honorary consul can be reached by phone at (48) 601 619 878 or by email at
