Angola hosts meeting of CPLP ministers

The Council of Ministers of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) is meeting on Monday in Luanda to consider the role of seas and oceans in the international projection and economic cooperation in the organization.

The XVI extraordinary meeting is focused on cooperation among the members of the community and foresees the revision of the internal staff regulations (ISR).

Speaking at the event, the outgoing chairperson of the Council of Ministers of the CPLP, Téte António, highlighted the growth of the organization in terms of strategic cooperation plans and the expansion of community actions in various areas.

Téte António also pointed out that there are structural reforms to be made that pass through dialogue between the member states of the community.

The minister reiterated that the agenda of the Angolan presidency elected economic cooperation as a priority for action, in order to adapt the statute of the CPLP to this new paradigm.

According to Téte António, the statute was revised to regulate the membership and improve cooperation with associated observers.

Angola took over the rotating presidency of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP) during the organization’s 13th Conference of Heads of State and Government, held in Luanda in 2021.

Angola defends as an agenda, among other projects, the strengthening of mobility among member states and a special attention to the economic sector.
