In his letter, Urkullu mentions a “policy of rapprochement and commitment to the entire Basque community abroad”. I’m excited about it and hopeful that he’ll come through. In my opinion, much work is still needed for the Diaspora to be known and have the place it deserves among Basques in Euskadi.
Letter to the Diaspora
The Lehendakari says his goal will be to “enhance the image” of the Basque Country in the world and to secure its “recognition” as a country in its right in the international community.
To increase the presence of the Basque Country on the international stage will be the priority objective of the new Basque Government as means of disseminating the Basque culture and identity and help the economic and social development in the new world scenario.
On the first message of the recently-appointed Basque Premier Iñigo Urkullu to the Basque community abroad, the Lehendakari said the goal of his government will be to “enhance the image” of the Basque Country in the world and to secure its “recognition and participation” as a country in its right in the international community.
According to the Basque premier, in order to achieve this goal Basques must “join forces even more in the public and private sector, economically and culturally, supporting each other at home and also in the foreign networks.
Last but not least important, Urkullu proposes a policy of rapprochement and commitment to the entire Basque community abroad, mainly thoright the existing network of Basque federations and clubs.
