This will be the first visit by a Portuguese head of government to Iceland and the first high-level visit since the visit of the then President of the Republic Mário Soares in 1993.

António Costa arrives in Reykjavik at the end of the morning and will immediately have a working lunch with the Prime Minister of Iceland, Katrin Jakobsdóttir, in which the deepening of bilateral cooperation will be under analysis.

According to the Lisbon executive, the greatest potential for cooperation is registered in the area of renewable energies, which is “one of the bets of the governments of both countries, representing new opportunities for Portuguese companies that supply equipment for renewable energy plants since turbines, transformers, generators and small-scale solar solutions for off-grid energy production”.
