The director general of Casa África, Luis Padrón, was part of the delegation that visited Cape Verde this week, accompanying the President of the Canary Islands, Fernando Clavijo Batllé. The official, commercial Canary Islands visit to Praia was made in order to participate in the Cape Verde-Canary Islands Summit. This bilateral meeting included the signing of a memorandum of understanding and a final declaration and was attended by the Prime Minister of Cape Verde, José Ulisses de Pina Correia e Silva. The day before the summit day, a business meeting was held between the Minister of the Economy of Cape Verde, José Gonçalves, and the Minister of the Economy, Industry, Trade and Knowledge of the Canary Islands, Pedro Ortega Rodríguez. At this meeting, business opportunities in the country were explored through a presentation by Ana Barber, president of Cape Verde Trade Invest.

The relations between the Canary Islands and Cape Verde are of those of good neighbours, with cooperation in many fields. Dozens of companies from the Canary Islands have decided to commit to Cape Verde to expand their businesses and the Canary Islands’ airline Binter has now been awarded the contract for domestic flights within Cape Verde. The summit also highlights the excellent relations between the authorities of Cape Verde and the Canary Islands, based on mutual learning and collaboration. At the start of this month, the Cape Verde Culture Minister, Abrao Anibal Barbosa Vicent, spent a few days in the Canary Islands with an agenda organised by Casa África to meet with different authorities and make working visits.
