Eduardo Jesus, regional secretary of Tourism and Culture, met this morning in Ponta Delgada, on the island of São Miguel, with his Azorean counterpart Mário Jorge Borges, regional secretary of Transport, Tourism and Energy.
On the site, the regional secretary of Madeira clarified that the first meeting between the two rulers served to “show the great interest that Madeira has in deepening the partnership that exists today with the Azores, namely through SATA, which already guarantees a daily flight between the two archipelagos”.
“And above all, to express our intention to make this connection grow, allowing the people of Madeira to find a destination for their holidays in the Azores, and also that residents on these islands find Madeira a solution for their travels,” he continued.
The regional secretary pointed out that the doubling of the Atlantic and island population “is at a distance from the will of this same partnership, so that they can win the two regions with this proximity”.
At the meeting, it was also evidenced that, through Tourism, “they can approach the two archipelagos, causing their locations, aspirations, difficulties and concerns common to the island space to result in a stronger voice in the field of Tourism,” said Eduardo Jesus.
