In May the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) celebrates the International Day of the Portuguese Language. Georgia obtained the status of Associate Observer of the CPLP in 2014, and this year the CPLP also commemorates its 20th Anniversary. For all of these reasons, the TSU CAMÕES – Portuguese Language Center at Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University is organizing a week-long program (3rd through 7th May) with cultural activities ranging from conferences to film screenings and concerts.
