Azores host meeting of the Metropolis International Steering Committee in 2019

The Deputy Regional Secretary of the Presidency for External Relations announced in Ponta Delgada the annual meeting of the Metropolis International Steering Committee on the island of São Miguel in March 2019, emphasizing that it is an organization with members from all over the world and which will hold this meeting on its strategic reference, namely “on migration policies and integration and intercultural issues”.

The coming of this event to the Region follows the active participation of the Government of the Azores at the world conferences of Metropolis – the world’s largest conference on migration, bringing together academics, government representatives and civil society – as was the case at the last meeting, which was held in November in Sydney, Australia, under the theme ‘Global Migration in Turbulent Times’, after which the selection of the Azores came from the candidates to host this meeting next year.
