People aged 60-74 and people with higher education deemed themselves informed of the Estonian Presidency more often than the average (61% and 60%, respectively, said they were well or rather well informed).
Furthermore, 61% of the population considers the Estonian Presidency successful while 15% deem it unsuccessful. A quarter of the respondents did not have an opinion on the subject. When asked which area Estonia most focused on during the Estonian Presidency, most people named the development of the digital area (56% of the population).
“I am glad that people show a lot of support for the European Union and care about the issues Europe faces. Awareness of Estonia’s activities and goals has also improved thanks to the Estonian Presidency, which gives us hope that people feel that their opinions matter,” said Klen Jäärats, Director for EU Affairs of the Estonian Government Office, about the results of the survey.
