Brazil Calls for Portuguese-Speaking Countries to Work Together More Closely

BRASILIA – Brazilian Foreign Minister Jose Serra called on Monday for expanded political coordination among Community of Portuguese-speaking Nations, or CPLP, members during a ministerial meeting ahead of the group’s 11th summit.

“The CPLP could be a relevant platform for working together toward the sustainable development goals set by the United Nations” for 2030, Serra said in Brasilia, where heads of state and government from the member nations will meet until Tuesday.

The members of the CPLP, created in 1996 on the initiative of Portugal, are Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Mozambique, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe, and East Timor.

CPLP partners “should seek a convergence of their agendas” around “the goals of democracy, peace, justice and human rights” pursued by the international community, Serra said.

During the two-day summit, the CPLP is expected to approve a resolution laying out the group’s “new strategic vision” for the next 10 years.

This new “vision” aims to strengthen cooperation, particularly in the areas of economy, trade and business, and the CPLP’s presence as a group in all international forums, including efforts to promote the Portuguese language around the world.
