Estonia fortifies its position in critical minerals network through MSP membership

Estonia has recently become a participant in the Minerals Security Partnership (MSP), an initiative established by the United States. The goal is to expand Estonia’s network and attract new industries to the country in the coming years.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphasized that joining the MSP enhances international cooperation on securing the supply of critical raw materials. With Europe’s largest rare earth elements processing plant located in Estonia, the country sees its membership in the MSP as crucial for the sector’s development.

Estonia’s expertise in processing rare earth elements positions it uniquely in the supply chain, according to Ene Jürjens, the Director General of the Natural Resources Department at the Climate Ministry.
