ANNIVERSARIES. Ibero-American Summit
The Principality of Andorra will be the setting for the 27th Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government, in November 2020, bringing together representatives of 19 Ibero-American countries, in addition to those of Spain, Portugal and the Principality.
In November 2018, Andorra took over the rotating secretariat of the Ibero-American Conference to coordinate the meetings, forums and events involved in the conference in the lead up to the 2020 Summit, jointly with the Ibero-American General Secretariat.
Under the slogan “Innovation for sustainable development – 2030 Goal”, Andorra’s objective is to foster innovation in Ibero-America to meet the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, focusing on the opportunities generated by innovation in the various areas of sustainable development, such as social, cultural, educational, environmental and economic aspects.
These meetings are an excellent opportunity for addressing multilateral issues, as they facilitate support and control among equals, shared responsibility and commonly recognised standards, while also providing a forum for dialogue and initiatives at the global level. They foster an atmosphere of trust among everyone involved that enables the sharing of experiences and the agreement of common positions on the challenges facing the region.
Andorra signed the treaty constituting the Ibero-American General Secretariat in 2005. This Summit therefore coincides with the 15th anniversary of the Principality’s active participation.
The stamp displays a design in the form of the Summit’s logo, featuring the Santa Coloma church.
