* At its meeting today the Supervisory Board of Enterprise Estonia approved the expansion of its network of foreign representations. The board decided to open an office in Kiev during the second half of 2006 and to begin preparations for the opening of similar offices in Tokyo, China (Shanghai or Guangzhou) and in the San Francisco Bay Area in America.
Additional positions will also be created in Enterprise Estonia’s existing representations in Helsinki, Stockholm and London. The board based its decision to establish new offices and reinforce its existing ones on their support for Estonian entrepreneurs in target markets where the opportunities for companies to boost their income from exports, strategic investments and technology transfer are greatest and most rapid.
The expansion schedule for Enterprise Estonia’s offices was approved in principle at a cabinet session on 13 April 2006. The Estonian Chamber of Commerce and Industry has also shown its support for the representation sites selected based on the companies’ needs.
