Ana Catarina Mendes indicated that Portugal will seek the implementation of safe, organized and regular policies and seek the successful integration of equal countries for all.
“We continue to believe in the role of multilateralism in the governance of migration, within the European Union and the United Nations. We cannot face transnational challenges alone. Migrants are key to achieving sustainable development — we cannot leave 300 million behind “, added one ruler.
In her speech at the Forum, the minister highlighted that Portugal was one of the first countries to develop a plan for this declaration of services and 28 countries.
“At the launch of our plan, 96% of the years of implementation as its measures completed or successfully achieved.
Among the most important milestones of the Ana Mendes plan was the concern with the pandemic of access to important programs for migrants and its set of free and universal opportunities during the covid-19 pandemic; the mobility agreement between the member states of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) and various bilateral labor mobility agreements with partner countries; and the launch of a national protocol for the prevention, detection and protection of child victims of human trafficking.
“Finally, we have developed a consultation process with the International Organization for Migration on the involvement of civil society in the implementation of the Global Compact,” he added.
The minister also took the opportunity to express Portugal’s “deepest solidarity” with the Ukrainian people and called for an end to the houses of hostilities, which are causing “tragic impacts on people’s lives”, taking millions of their own.
