South-South co-operation between Portuguese-speaking countries

The historical links between the Portuguese-speaking countries began more than 500 years ago and since then the Portuguese language has been the main common factor of identification between this group of nations, being used in unifying cultural vehicles such as literature, music and even sport. In the work of Fernando Pessoa, one of the greatest poets of the Portuguese language and universal literature, we can find a phrase that exemplifies the unifying character and belonging to a community: "My homeland is the Portuguese language". This "homeland" now has more than 250 million citizens who have inherited the language and can use it as a vector for understanding and solidarity.
