Cabo Verde’s Minister of Health Arlindo do Rosário is set to take over the country’s Embassy in Beijing, filling a post which is currently vacant.

Prime Minister Ulisses Correia e Silva has already accepted the resignation of the Minister of Health, who asked to leave the government, after a very intense and stressful period due to the Covid-19 pandemic, A Nação reported.

The newspaper wrote that government sources said that Rosário will be the next Cabo Verde ambassador in Beijing.

Tânia Romualdo, the previous Cabo Verde ambassador, in Beijing, left the post in 2021 to become National Director for Foreign Policy at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Rosário has a degree in Medicine at Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal) and a Specialisation in General Pediatrics at Escola Paulista de Medicina, Federal University of São Paulo (Brazil).

The new Cabo Verde ambassador in China started his career as a general practitioner at the Ribeira Grande Health Department in  1989, and became a National Deputy in 2011, CLBrief reported.
