According to estimates, there are up to 200 000 people of Estonian origin worldwide – a substantial number considering the population of Estonia. Studies show that nearly 80% Estonians living abroad want to stay informed about life in Estonia and contribute to the development of the Estonian society and promoting Estonia worldwide. From March 2021, the domain of the global Estonian diaspora is coordinated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and other relevant ministries, partner agencies and Estonian organisations across the world help implement various activities.
