Estonia will take over the Presidency of the EU in the second half of 2017, and therefore, EU issues were on the agenda during the meeting, for example digitisation, security policy and migration. Members from the Committees on Foreign Affairs and Industry and Trade and the Committee on EU Affairs also participated in the meeting.  

During her visit to Sweden, President Kersti Kaljulaid will also meet the Prime Minister Stefan Lövfen (Social Democratic Party), King Carl XVI Gustaf and the Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström (Social Democratic Party).
