The Diplomatic Academy is strengthening its cooperation with the Instituto Camões in Prague


The Director of the Diplomatic Academy and Training Department of the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dr. Věra Jeřábková, met the head of the Prague branch of Instituto Camões in April 2015 to discuss the details of future cooperation in the field of Portuguese language training at the MFA in Prague. Established by the government of Portugal, Instituto Camões promotes Portuguese language and culture through its centres worldwide.  

Based on the draft Memorandum of Understanding with the Diplomatic Academy and Training Department, Instituto Camões should, in the future, prepare language exams for the employees of the Czech MFA. It should also supplement the library at the MFA in Prague with Portuguese textbooks and lusophone literature. Portuguese language courses have been run at the Czech MFA since 2013; Portuguese language skills are a prerequisite for the posting of both diplomatic and administrative/technical staff at Czech diplomatic and consular missions in Portugal and Brazil.
