Celebrating Colombia's Independence Day
- Canning House
Canning House is pleased to present a virtual celebration of Colombia's Independence Day, with a message from the British Embassy Colombia, and a selection of resources to mark the day.
On 17 September, Canning House, the British Group Inter-Parliamentary Union (BGIPU) and the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Latin America hosted a parliamentary briefing with the British Ambassadors to Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, and Peru.
The meeting offered an opportunity for Members of Parliament and FCDO officials to hear from the Ambassadors on the current circumstances in their countries, and for the Ambassadors to speak on their experiences and insights from their postings.
At the briefing, we heard from:
The session was chaired by Mark Menzies MP, Chair of the APPG for Latin America. We also heard introductory remarks from Cristina Cortes, Canning House CEO, and Rick Nimmo, Director of the BGIPU.
Following the Ambassadors' presentations, the session was opened to questions from our audience.
Canning House would like to thank the Ambassadors for their insights, the BGIPU and APPG for their co-hosting, and our audience for their engagement and questions.
