Thank you for the presentation of your proposal on the initiative of the European Historic Cafés Association to highlight the importance of these unique meeting places, the cafés.
We agree with your view that the historic cafés played an important role in the contact and exchange of views and ideas between people of culture and art, and this role should be highlighted the way it deserves.
In this context, we would like to inform you that the Directorate of International Relations and European Union of the Ministry of Culture and Sport will do anything, within our power, to stand by your vision and efforts.
We wish you every success in your work!”
