Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries

The Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP) was created in 1996 and is composed of nine members: Brazil, Angola, Cabo Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial Guinea, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe, and Timor-Leste.  The Community's Statute defines three main objectives for the organization: political-diplomatic dialogue; cooperation in all matters; promotion and diffusion of the Portuguese language. The singularity of the CPLP is due to the fact that its member States are scattered in different continents and that it has built, upon the solid ground of a common language and historical and cultural ties, a network of shared values and interests which goes beyond geographical distances. The CPLP has been built upon principles that, according to the Brazilian perspective, are essential. First, decisions are made by consensus, giving them unquestioned legitimacy. As a result, dialogue among members occurs horizontally and democratically, with recognition and respect for existing asymmetries. The presence and activities of the Community have contributed to the international projection of the Portuguese language; to the institutional and political strengthening of its members in situations of crisis or instability; to the joint affirmation of common interests of its members in other international fora; and to the development of cooperation programs in several areas. The CPLP has fulfilled the expectations and complied with the objectives which motivated its creation. The three main bodies of the CPLP, in its political sphere, are: Conference of Heads of State and Government; Council of Foreign Minister; Permanent Steering Committee (CCP), integrated by the Permanent Representatives of member States together with the Community's Executive Secretariat. The CPLP also has a forum of Focal Points on Cooperation, with Ministerial Meetings in the most varied government sectors, and a Parliamentary Assembly, composed of representatives from the Legislative Branches of the members States. The pro-tempore Presidency of the CPLP works on a rotating basis, with two years-terms. The Member State which hosts the Conference of Heads of State and Government becomes President of the Community for the subsequent period. The country that holds the pro-tempore Presidency chairs the meetings of the three governing bodies – Conference, Council of Ministers, and the CCP. Headquartered in Lisbon, the Executive Secretariat is the operational arm of the organization and its main purposes are to implement the decisions from the governing bodies and to ensure the implementation of cooperation programs. The position of the CPLP Executive-Secretary has been occupied, since July 2012, by Isaac Murade Murargy, from Mozambique. The CPLP is financed both through the operating budget of the Executive Secretariat, funded by mandatory contributions from member States, and through a Special Fund, promoted by voluntary contributions and aimed at funding cooperation programs, projects, and topical initiatives. {backbutton}
