It was at this session that collaboration agreements were signed between the Municipality of Faro and the University of Algarve, the Algarve Regional Tourism Board and the Algarve Intermunicipal Community, thus formalising these entities as co-producers of the application. In this session, Collaboration Letters were also signed by the IPDJ Algarve Regional Directorate, the Algarve’s Regional Directorate for Culture the and CCDR, therefore formalising their interest in participating in this process, which aims to develop the region.
The session was rounded off with a lovely photograph taken of the Algarve’s key regional leaders, embodying the long-sought-after idea that Faro’s Bid for European Capital of Culture encompass the entire region. A session widely attended by the region’s life forces.
