Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (ANO) was in the Estonian capital on Tuesday for an official visit at which he discussed a host of European and bilateral issues with his counterpart, Jüri Ratas, and other government members.

Topping the agenda was the post-Brexit EU budget, which plans on cutting cohesion policy funding in 2021 to 2027, which would negatively impact both the Czech and Estonian economies.

Mr Babiš also visited NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence. He announced on Tuesday that Prague will host another international conference on cyber security in May.
