Panaji: Consul general of Portugal in Goa, Francisco Duarte Azavedo, visited the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) on Monday morning and interacted with mayor Surendra Furtado.

Furtado asked Azavedo to think about Portugal contributing to the celebrations of Panaji city's 175 years, coming up in March next year. Portugal's contribution could be in the form of art, culture, music and urban development and it could coincide with Carnival in February and could end in March, Furtado said.

The consul will take the proposal to his government, Furtado said.

Azavedo told Reporters that it was a pleasure to meet with the mayor of Panaji, a town linked with the past and the future. "We need to learn from our heritage in order to construct together in the future and do what is better for India and Portugal,"he said.
