“During the working visit to the Federative Republic of Brazil, the President of the Republic of Croatia Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović met with representatives of the Croatian community and presented Awards of Recognition of the Republic of Croatia to the associations ‘Croatia Sacra Paulistana’ and ‘Society of Friends of Dalmatia.’

‘Brazil is the last country that I am visiting during my visit to South America, which I have chosen to visit primarily because of the many Croatian emigrants who were looking for a better life and came to this vast continent, some of them settling in Brazil,’ said President Grabar-Kitarović addressing representatives of the Croatian community in the Croatian club ‘Croatia Sacra Paulistana’ in São Paulo.” (Croatia Week)
