Angola: Embassy in Brussels Runs Art Exhibition

Brussels — A plastic works exhibition has opened in Brussels, Belgium, to enable Portuguese Speaking Communities (CPLP) member countries to display in the coming three weeks their cultural richness and diversity.

The event that opened on Monday is first of all aimed at raising awareness among their communities abroad and diplomatic circles of the African Caribbean and Pacific and European Union.

Speaking on the occasion, the Angolan ambassadress to Belgium, Maria Elizabeth Simbrão, said that the initiative will enable the knowledge of the cultural identity of each CPLP member country.

Elizabeth Simbrão stressed the political and diplomatic coordination among the member states on matters of international relations and cooperation associated with economic, social, cultural, scientific and technical affairs.

She also spoke of the implementation of projects for the promotion and dissemination of the Portuguese language.
