It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Portuguese Embassy in Bogota web-page.
I am delighted to invite each one of you to visit our web-page hoping that the available information will be useful and that it will also help you familiarize yourselves with Portugal and our activities in Colombia.
Having already completed three years on post as Ambassador of Portugal to the Republic of Colombia, I have had the privilege to accompany the development of our mutual relations. Plenty of good work has been done in the past few years and I believe there are many reasons to be confident and ambitious about the future of Portugal and Colombia relationship.
Portugal and Colombia maintain for many years excellent political and diplomatic relations. Bilateral relations have continued to widen and more recently other areas were strengthened: economic, commercial and cultural and there is plenty of room to boost and deepen all aspects, without exception, of this mutual beneficial and very friendly relationship.
I have no doubt that the very positive image of Portugal in this country is also due to role played by our Community, which has been steadily growing, the personal and professional examples from each of our Compatriots who live and work here, and who honour us working in this Embassy as we can daily witness good examples of values and ethics.
I invite you to visit our web-page frequently in order to get updated information. This website has the objective of bringing us all, even more, together. Thank you for your interest.
João Ribeiro de Almeida Embassador
