Portuguese Prime Minister Announces 1 Million Euro Fund for Ibero-American/CPLP Cooperation

The Prime Minister, António Costa, announced today that Portugal has taken the initiative to establish a fund, starting with one million euros, for cooperation between the Ibero-American community and the CPLP.

In a speech at the 28th Ibero-American Summit, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, António Costa welcomed “the accession as an observer of the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries [CPLP] to the Ibero-American community.

The Prime Minister considered that this “is a very important step” and noted that “the Ibero-American community was already an observer in the CPLP space”.

“And together we can do more. And that is why Portugal has taken the initiative to set up a fund for cooperation between the Ibero-American summit and the CPLP, which we have already started with one million euros, in order to strengthen cooperation between these two organisations,” he added.

António Costa spoke at the 28th Ibero-American Summit right after the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa.

At this summit, whose motto is “Together for a fair and sustainable Ibero-America”, 13 of the 22 countries of the Ibero-American community are represented at the highest level.

In attendance in Santo Domingo are the heads of state of Ecuador, which will host the next summit, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Honduras, Paraguay and Uruguay, as well as the host country, the Dominican Republic.
