President Jorge Carlos Fonseca has been invited by Brazilian President Dilma Roussef to participate in the High Level Segment of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, known as Rio+20.
The event, which will take place between June 20 and 22 of 2012 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will take place two decades after one of the most important international meetings of the 20th Century, Rio92, a UN conference on the environment and development.
The announcement of Fonseca’s participation was made on the Cape Verdean Presidency’s Facebook page. The President is expected to participate in Rio+20, although the final decision will only be made after the President speaks with Prime Minister José Maria Neves.
