President Kersti Kaljulaid is on a working visit to Bavaria today and tomorrow, where the Head of State will be an honorary guest at the annual conference of the Parliamentary Group of the Christian-Social Union of Bavaria (CSU).

President Kaljulaid will talk to participants at the conference about how digitalisation is changing societies and the impact of the digital revolution on society at large, and how the Estonian model is possible in Germany and the European Union as a whole.

The CSU is a sister party to the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and part of the German Government Coalition. The conference will also be attended by Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, and Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, President of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

In addition, president Kaljulaid will also meet with the Prime Minister of Bavaria Markus Söder. Germany will take over the Presidency of the European Union in the second half of this year, and the meeting will discuss how Estonia and Germany can jointly advance digital issues within the EU. European security and the need for Member States to take greater responsibility there will also be discussed.

President Kaljulaid will also meet with the German Development Minister Gerd Müller to talk about bilateral development cooperation in Ukraine.
