It is a great honor for me to be appointed to the post of Ambassador of Portugal in Havana.
I arrive in this wonderful country a few months before we begin celebrating the 100 years of diplomatic relations between Portugal and Cuba. I hope that this important event will serve not only to consolidate the much we have achieved in our bilateral relationship, proven by the numerous official visits at the highest level among the political leaders of both countries, but also to go further.
We hope to contribute to concrete results that demonstrate the excellent phase and maturity of our bilateral relationship and help to promote the interests of Portugal and Cuba at the beginning of the second century of our common experience.
I also wish to warmly greet the Portuguese community in Cuba. I would like everyone to feel at home at the Embassy of Portugal in Havana.
I can assure you that our Consular Services, Cultural Services and AICEP are fully committed to supporting you, as well as the Portuguese companies already present in Cuba and those who still wish to discover this market. All of you contribute to the prestige of Portugal in Cuba and we will try to continue to accompany you with commitment and with great pride.
