Answer for Iberian American community

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My colleagues within the Community Relations team met with several key Iberian American or Spanish/Portuguese-speaking organisations in July 2016 to find out more about their communities' aspirations and concerns, and explore ways in which we can help address them.

Equally, my director of Communications, Patrick Hennessy, spoke at the launch of the seminal report on the Latin American community in London - 'Towards Visibility' in June 2016. And discussions are also taking place to host an exhibition at City Hall focusing on London's Latin American community in the near future.

Finally, I sent a message of support to London's Iberian American community to celebrate 'Amigo Month', which started on 7 September and ends in mid- October.
