CPLP Executive Secretary in Luanda

Maria do Carmo Silveira � who makes this visit under the invitation of the Angolan Foreign minister � is in this southern African country to dialogue with the local authorities on current pertinent issues, including the challenges and perspectives facing the organisation, as well as to present her farewell greetings.

This is a courtesy and farewell visit, since I am about to finish my mandate (at the helm of the CPLP), I could not end it without visiting Angola in such capacity, she emphasised to journalists at the 4 de Fevereiro International Airport, in Luanda.

The CPLP chief’s visit agends includes an audience with the Angolan Head of State, JoAPound o Lourenco, and with Foreign minister Manuel Augusto.

In these meetings we’ll certainly speak about the CPLP and also about the perspectives of the Angolan presidency over this organ which it is to take over in 2020 from Cape Verde, she said.

The CPLP comprises Angola, Brazil, Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, SAPound o Tome e Principe, East-Timor and Equatorial-Guinea.
