Estonian president, Kersti Kaljulaid, has become the first Estonian to be featured in the Forbes magazine’s list, the World’s 100 Most Powerful Women.

 

Kaljulaid comes in the list at number 78, just a spot ahead of Arianna Huffington,  an American entrepreneur.

 

“Kaljulaid is leading a quiet digital revolution in tiny Estonia (population 1.2 million), where she is the country’s first female president,” Forbes said. “Estonia was the first country to digitize its public services – including elections, health care and school systems.”

 

“Robot delivery vehicles are a common site in the country’s capital (actually not that common yet – editor) and every citizen is given a digital number at birth which they can use to do everything from filing taxes to voting,” the magazine added. “Kaljulaid is currently spearheading a bid to launch Estonia’s own state-backed cryptocurrency, called estcoin – and is helping spread the digital revolution into Europe.”

 

The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women list is topped by the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, followed by the British prime minister, Theresa May, and the American philanthropist, Melinda Gates.

 

Kaljulaid was elected Estonian president on 3 October 2016.
