Together with the Embassy of Brazil and the Embassy of Portugal, the Brazilian-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce (BNCC) and Culturas invited the lusophone community to discuss the role of Portuguese as a language in Norway.

At total, 45 Portuguese speakers attended the event on November 24th at the African Cultural Institute in Oslo. The main goal of the evening was to strength the network among professionals who speak Portuguese in Norway.

Since 2014, BNCC and Culturas hold the Annual Brazilian Professionals meeting, and this year, the event extended the invitation to all Portuguese speakers, native and learners, including people from Portugal, Mocambique, Angola and Norwegians.

The ambassador of Brazil, George Monteiro Prata, and the Ambassador of Portugal, Clara Nunes dos Santos, joined the event and presented the importance of this language in the world. After a mingling session and refreshments, the participants were invited to a Brazilian movie session to watch Caramuru (Guel Arraes).
