While celebrating our rich culture and past, this is also an exciting time for new companies and new economies like those of Estonia. And at Oandu, it was a great honor to be among so many dignitaries and leaders from my homeland
Tallinn, Estonia (PRWEB) September 5, 2009
Within the framework of the Estonian Song and Dance Celebration, a merchant originating from Estonia, Margus Reinsalu, and the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs organized a reception to world famous Estonians. Among ca 100 guests, there were such well-known names as a supermodel Carmen Kass, a professional footballer Mart Poom, the President of Estonia Toomas Hendrik Ilves, the biggest investor of Hotmail and Skype Steve Jürvetson, a world-famous architect Tõnu Altosaar and many others.
To take advantage of the time when many well-known Estonians visit their homeland due to the Song and Dance Celebration, which is of a very big importance for Estonia, there was a reception in July on behalf of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Urmas Paet and the merchant and the Moroccan Honorary Consul to Estonia Margus Reinsalu to thank those who have helped to form the reputation of Estonia with their activities abroad. According to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Paet, famous Estonians were invited to the reception from all over the world whatever the field they represent. Paet mentioned that those people that were present at the reception have introduced Estonia by their very professional activity.
Margus Reinsalu is glad that there are so many influential Estonians around the world who are making name for this country: "All of these people who gathered here this evening shape Estonian reputation and introduce our heritage to the rest of the world."
Well known venture capitalist and biggest investor of Hotmail and Skype Steve Jurvetson told that The Song Festival was a moving experience for him - hearing 26 thousand singers in unison - and something he could only imagine from the scenes in The Singing Revolution film. "While celebrating our rich culture and past, this is also an exciting time for new companies and new economies like those of Estonia. And at Oandu, it was a great honor to be among so many dignitaries and leaders from my homeland," said Jurvetson.
The reception took place in a historical Oandu watermill belonging to Margus Reinsalu that he renovated with an objective to preserve the Estonian historical heritage. President of the Republic of Estonia, Toomas Hendrik Ilves, together with his wife had come to greet the famous Estonians. In July last year, Reinsalu organized the Morocco's Throne Day at the Oandu watermill, which is the most important civil holiday in the Kingdom of Morocco.
KC Grupp founded by Margus Reinsalu is dealing with large volume real estate projects in Morocco and Brazil. The favorites of the entrepreneur are fast cars, his company Tone Tea has concluded a contract with a Spanish formula team participating in GP2 to advertise a fat burning drink known under the brand Fat Burner. Reinsalu highly appreciates the Estonian Song and Dance Celebration and helps to promote it in the wide world via a local Estonian PR company.
