I am very happy to welcome President Duque here today, what a pleasure. And it is a pleasure to host a really close friend and like-minded partner. Today, we have not only many joint projects, but we have something very concrete. We are signing today, with Commissioner Sinkevičius and Minister Correa, the Joint Declaration on Environment, Climate Action and Sustainable Development.
Colombia has a vast ecologic wealth, this is very impressive, and thus is an indispensable partner in the fight against climate change and our transition towards action for the environment. We both share a strong determination what that is concerned and we will work hand in hand on our green agenda. So today’s Declaration is another important step in that same direction.
Thank you very much and a very warm welcome again.
