The Leader of the City Council, Mr. Mark Pritchard,  was delighted by the event, which he classified as memorable, taking into consideration that the Portuguese community, which was stated to be composed of around 2.000 people, would be benefitted, deepening the existant relationship.

In his intervention, the Secretary of State for the Communities of Portugal highlighted that it is the first protocol of its kind established with a United Kingdom borough, saluting the circumstance of this institutional cooperation mechanism complementing the service done by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, through the Consulate-General of Portugal in Manchester, contributing for the better satisfaction of the community's needs.

He added that the entry into force of the protocol would be already expressed in the support that the council would give to the consular outreach visits booked in 16 February and 2 November, but that this instrument's reach wouldn't run out solely in this important logistical support, as it can include the business, social and cultural domains.
