MSAR to be proposed as new capital of Portuguese-speaking cities

The Union of Portuguese-speaking Capital Cities (UCCLA) will vote on a proposal on whether to make the MSAR its new capital. The vote will take place at the organization’s general assembly meeting to be held April 19 in Luanda, Angola.
According to the organisation, the current President David Simango – mayor of the capital of Mozambique – will step down from his currently held position, with a Macau representative to be the likely replacement, due to Mainland China’s policies to promote the city as a platform between itself and Portuguese-speaking countries.
Created in 1985, the UCCLA looks to promote inter-municipal exchange and cooperation between Lusophone cities, with the organisation having 23 Portuguese-speaking official city-members in Asia, Africa, South America and Europe.
On April 20, the MSAR delegation will also take part in a UCCLA forum on ‘Sustainable Cities’ to be held in Viana, Angola.
