Arrow Felipe and Letizia's Official Visit to Brazil & Uruguay: February 22-March 1, 2005

From ABC:
http://www.abc.es/abc/pg050217/prens...AC-NAC-030.asp

The Princes will travel to Brazil in their first official visit to Ibero-America

The Princes of Asturias will travel to Brazil next week, in their first official visit to a Latin American country. Felipe and Letizia start now a series of State visits, with purpose of narrowing the relations with the Ibero-America.

After attending the possessions of 33 Latin American presidents, Don Felipe has become a "privileged interlocutor" between
Europe and America. For that reason, the trip to Brazil will not be isolated, but will be followed by others. The idea is that the Princes make a trip to Ibero-America every year, but the calendar will depend on the agendas of the different countries, the interests of Spain and the evolution of foreign policy. These official visits will include political, economic, cultural and social contacts at the highest level.

On top of these new trips,
Brazil has been chosen, as a country with which Spain maintains "intensive relations", according to diplomatic sources. Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will go next Tuesday to Brasilia, where they will be received with honors of Chief of and then the Heir of the throne shall meet the president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

In the economic capital of Brazil, Sao Paulo, Don Felipe and his wife will inaugurate an enterprise forum, where will attend numerous Spanish and Brazilian industrialists. In fact,
Spain is the second world-wide investor in this Latin American country.

A new Cervantes Institute

In the cultural chapter, the Princes will inaugurate the Instituto Cervantes de São Paulo, an act that responds to the will of
Spain to impel the knowledge of the Spanish in Brazil.

Don Felipe and Doña Letizia, who will travel accompanied by the Secretary of State for Foreign Issues and for Ibero-America, Bernardino
Leon, will move to Salvador da Baía. On the last day, they will visit the favela of Candeal, a marginal quarter in which live 5.500 people and which is well-known in Spain thanks to the enormously popular documentary film of Fernando Trueba "The miracle of Candeal". In all Brazil, about 46 million people live in poverty.

From Salvador da Baía, the Princes will go to Montevídeo, to attend the taking of possession of the new president of
Uruguay, Tabaré Vázquez. For Don Felipe it will be the XXXIV.

Arrow Official Visit to Brazil & Uruguay: February 22nd to March 1st, 2005

As Felipe and Letizia will begin tomorrow an official visit to Brazil and Uruguay, Elsa and I thought it deserved its own thread.

So, any news and/or pictures about this visit should be posted in this thread.

Thank you and have fun!

BRASILIA

The princes of Asturias arrive today at Brazil, first destiny of a program of trips that in the next years will take them to cross all the countries located to the south of the United States. They will not be trips of State, since these only correspond to the King, but officials and the best way of Don Felipe and Doña Letizia to know and to let them to know them in a part of the world that have specially tie with Spain.

Don Felipe was in Brazil in the occasion of the taking of possession of president Luiz Inácio Lula and the last year he invited the Brazilian agent chief executive to his wedding. Lula could not attend the real wedding, but he as well insisted to the Princes to visit Brazil as soon as they could. Tonight, president Lula and his wife, Leticia call like the princess of Asturias, will offer to Don Felipe and Doña Letizia a supper deprived in her residence and tomorrow, with all the honors, will take place the official recibimiento of the Princes in the presidential palace of Planalto.

After maintaining contacts with the different powers from the State in Brasilia, the political capital, the Princes will continue the trip in Sao Paulo, the economic capital, in where they will inaugurate the Cervantes Institute. The visit will finish Sunday in Salvador of Bay.

It can not be a State Visit, maybe only an Official Visit.If King Juan Carlos visit, it can be said as the State Visit, Felipe is a Prince not a Head of State.

I'm sorry, you're right. The guilt is mine, as I misunderstood the article from ABC, where it says:

«This way, Don Felipe and Doña Letizia will begin a series of trips with a new format, SIMILAR TO the State visits, trying to take advantage of the magnificent contacts of the Heir to the Throne, in order to narrow the relations with Ibero-America».

Thanks, it doesn't excuse it, but I was confused by the fact that, according to the articles I've previously posted, it seems they will be received with honors of Head of State. However, as you well pointed out, we cannot give this title, which is exclusive of the King.

Some of these journos always get it wrong. But then I also thought it as ok to call official visits by Crown Princes "state visits"... especially after reading some Australian articles about Frederik & Mary's "state visit" to Australia starting this week (lol!)

Will there be any gala events associated with this visit? I hope so! I hope the Pss brought her tiara with her. :)

At all of the websites I visited, they say that the flight between Spain and Brazil takes about 10 hours, so, if the time is right, they'll arrive here around 6:30 PM, Brazilian time. (GMT - 3)
