From AI to Russia, Here's How Estonia's President Is Planning for the Future

April 6, 2018View for printing

Known for its digital government, tax, and medical systems, Estonia is planning for the future.

At 48 years old, Kersti Kaljulaid is Estonia's youngest president ever, and its first female president. A marathon runner with degrees in genetics and an MBA, she spent a career behind the scenes--mostly as a European government auditor--before being elected by Estonia's legislature in 2016. Two years later, she's continuing Estonia's push for global digital security while deflecting military and cyber threats from Russia, which occupied Estonia for 50 years until its liberation in 1991.
