“The decree approving the Agreement between the Portuguese Republic and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on mutual recognition for the purposes of driving and exchanging driving licenses has been signed”, says a statement released after the meeting of the executive.

With this agreement, driving licenses issued by issuing entities in both countries will be mutually recognised. After Brexit, the system of driving licenses issued by Member States of the European Union or the European Economic Area no longer applied to the United Kingdom.

At the same session of the Council of Ministers, the Economic Cooperation Agreement between the Portuguese Republic and the Republic of Moldova was approved, which aims to develop and strengthen economic cooperation between the two States. The objective of the agreement is to “intensify and diversify bilateral economic relations on a mutually beneficial basis”, said the Council of Ministers.
