Setomaa セト王国

After almost two years of correspondence JECC has finally visited Setomaa to meet the representatives to discuss how to proceed our collaboration further. 

Setomaa is a region in southern Estonia which is a cultural icon with a unique, singing tradition, its own dialect and hospitality. Setos’ polyphonic style of folk singing, called leelo, believed to be more than 1 000 years old, was added to the UNESCO list of intangible culture in 2009.

We met with the Seto leaders and folks and covered a wide range of subjects: eco / cultural tourism, organic farming, product and package designs, export of mineral water, agricultural and handcrafted products, exchange of experts and consultants, various rural development projects, financial subsidies and so on.

The questions are not specific but generally on these points: 

What you think of the current trend and future development of the industry in relation to the traditional values, the economic sanctions, healthy population of aqua life and conservation, the idea of consuming the locally caught food, how successful is Estonia's fishery in terms of exporting and so on.
