Notes to correspondents: Secretary-General's remarks on Tigray

I’m deeply concerned with the present situation in Tigray. It is essential to have a real ceasefire paving the way for a dialogue able to bring a political solution to Tigray. 

The presence of foreign troops is an aggravating factor of confrontation. At the same time, full humanitarian access, unrestricted humanitarian access must be guaranteed to the whole territory. The destruction of civilian infrastructure is totally unacceptable.

Secretary-General's message to Web Summit

It is a pleasure to greet the Web Summit.

The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated our dependence on digital technologies and highlighted the life-saving benefits of connectivity. As societies have locked down and sent people into isolation, Internet access and digital advances have kept people connected and societies running.

É com muito gosto que saúdo a Ordem dos Engenheiros e todos os colegas neste dia tão significativo para os Engenheiros portugueses.

Ao longo de muitas décadas, a Ordem dos Engenheiros tem reunido profissionais de elevado gabarito e tem-se debruçado na contribuição desta profissão para o progresso e o bem-estar da nossa sociedade e do nosso país.

Hoje, o trabalho da Engenharia é essencial na construção de um futuro sustentável, nos esforços no âmbito da ação climática e em muitos aspetos do combate à pandemia da covid-19.
