Message from the Ambassador
An Ambassador of Portugal in China can not but start by mentioning the long relationship with this land and its people that dates back to 500 years ago. Much of our attention when we have to deal with historical events linked to the Portuguese in China tends to be focused on Macau, but we should not forget other places where our presence was recorded, among which is Beijing.
The Iberian Peninsula was originally inhabited by two peoples known as the Iberians and the Celtiberians. A sub-group of these, living along the western coast, was known by classic historians as the 'Lusitanians', the traditional name sometimes given to the Portuguese in literature and the arts.
