Embassies and High Comissions around the world celebrate Her Majesty’s birthday around worldwide, representing the British government. In light of the changes brought about by the coronavirus pandemic, new ways of celebrating have emerged in every corner of the world.
For the British Embassy in Asuncion, this become the perfect opportunity to extend the celebration beyond the country’s capital. Ambassador Ramin Navai commented:
While we can’t enjoy this occasion together and in person, a great advantage of doing it virtually is that many more people in Paraguay can join us on this special day. (…)
I would like to make a special welcome to those of you listening in, especially from outside of Asunción.
The event has the support of British companies in Paraguay, as well as friendly companies that accompany the celebration of The Queen’s Birthday. In this edition, we have ACE S.A.C. for the British brands Land Rover and Jaguar; DIAGEO Paraguay; Wines and Spirits; and in addition to the above, we count on the local companies Monalisa Paraguay, and AJ Vierci.
The events seeks to celebrate Her Majesty as well as strengthen the bonds of friendship between Paraguay and the United Kingdom. Ambassador Navai concluded his video message by saying:
I reiterate my commitment, and that of the Embassy’s and the United Kingdom, to continue to strengthen our commercial, cultural, educational and people-to-people relations with Paraguay.
This enormous challenge that we face, we face together, and we will resolve it, hopefully in the best and shortest possible time, and we will all meet again soon.
