At this beginning of the 21st century, Internet has become an indispensable vehicle of communication and approach of all those that are separated by distance, as is the case of the Portuguese diaspora. To promote the site / blog of the Consulate General of Portugal in Newark, I am delighted to give you a warm welcome to this space for information, promotion and approach between the Portuguese communities in the States of New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware,  and Portugal. This space that we wish to be interactive and therefore open to your contributions is also a space for the dissemination of the activities and initiatives for the promotion and spreading of the Portuguese language and culture from various community organizations and, hopefully, a facilitator in your contacts with the services of this Consulate General and various bodies of the Public Administration in Portugal.

Pedro Soares de Oliveira, Consul General of Portugal in Newark
