Farewell message by Ambassador Manuel Lobo Antunes



"Today my mission in Italy has come to an end. I leave grateful for the 4 years me and my family spent in Rome. I thank the collaboration and support received by the members of our community. 

It was a priviledge to work alongside the Italian government and the diplomatic corps accredited in Rome.

Lastly, I deeply  thank the cooperation of the Embassy's staff. 

Manuel Lobo Antunes"
