The Amilcar Cabral Institute is pleased to announce its appointment as the administrative body to the United Kingdom Parliament’s All-Party Parliamentary Group on Guinea-Bissau.
The body has been set up by Parliament to assist with the country’s development, address its political problems and foster relations between the two nations.
Peter Thompson, the Institute’s president, remarked: “It is a great honour and a wonderful achievement for the institute to be given the responsibility of running the UK’s first parliamentary group on Guinea-Bissau. This is a tremendous recognition of the hard work that has gone into the development of our research institute over the past couple of years, and an endorsement of the depth of expertise that the institute possesses.
“I would also like to commend Parliament for having the foresight to create a legislative group focused on tackling the profound issues in Guinea-Bissau that affect the western world. This gives the UK the opportunity to become an international standard bearer.”
The Institute’s responsibilities have commenced with immediate effect.
