Estonian Ambassador to Denmark Meelike Palli opened the fifth Estonian Honorary Consulate in Denmark. Estonia’s new honorary consul is Thomas Graversen. The honorary consulate is located in the city of Fredericia in South Jutland.
Estonian Ambassador Meelike Palli said at the opening that an honorary consulate in Fredericia will help to develop closer economic and cultural ties than before. “Opening an honorary consulate in the economically active area of Jutland – the triangle of Fredericia, Vejle and Kolding – will create new opportunities for Estonian businesses in business relations, export, and investments,” the ambassador stated.
“Since Denmark and Estonia have such good, long-lived and historical relations, being the Estonian honorary consul is a particularly great honour for me,” noted Thomas Graversen during the opening of the honorary consulate.
Head of the foreign offices of Enterprise Estonia Krista Humal was present at the opening to introduce Estonia’s favourable investment environment and tourism opportunities. Others present at the opening of the honorary consulate were members of South Jutland’s local government and representatives of business, cultural, educational and consular circles, including Mayor of Fredericia Thomas Banke.
Honorary Consul Thomas Graversen was born in Fredericia in 1962. He studied at the Fredericia International Business College and at the Trekantområdet Business Academy. In 1984 he began working at the furniture production company Fredericia Furniture and in 1995 he became the owner of the company.
