The fact that the XIII ANAFRE Congress is held for the first time in the Algarve region and in the city of Portimão is, on the one hand, a sign of rigor, given the word given by the President of ANAFRE, who was challenged to organize the Congress in Portimão, about two years ago. On the other, the recognition of the work and commitment that the Parish Councilors of the Algarve region have shown in the most diverse battles.
The highlighted theme “The Parishes in the State Reform” is extremely relevant and constitutes an important challenge for the Parish Councilors who will have the opportunity to debate the State Reform and in it the Parishes as a model to be reconverted and restructured.
Portimão will receive on December 1, 2 and 3 around 1700 people from the North to the South of the country, who will enjoy a city that is now a national reference, both for its cosmopolitanism and for its hospitable way of receiving.
A city with touristic scrolls, it features remarkable integrated development milestones and an excellent quality of life, which makes it a land with a humanist matrix.
Hotels, restaurants and traditional commerce will be stimulated and stimulated for three days, counteracting the fragile economic situation felt by traders in Portimão.
A challenge and a winning bet!
Ana Figueiredo is president of the Parish of Portimão
