We celebrate today, the 5th of May, the International Day of the Portuguese Language, following a decision by UNESCO last November 2019. The date is meant to match the previous date chosen by the Community of The Portuguese-Speaking Countries - CPLP to comemorate the Day of the Portuguese Language and Culture in CPLP.
To celebrate this date, the Embassy of Portugal, together with the other diplomatic representations of countries of Portuguese Official Language in Addis Ababa, presents this contribution in video: "The word and the Portuguese language on the lusophone poetry", which gathers seven poetic voices from the five African Countries of Portuguese Official Language (PALOP), Brazil and Portugal https://youtu.be/GaLoqiYrYds
