Consular staff met with key local authorities in the areas of tourism, prevention, security and social assistance, and gave a presentation explaining the Embassy’s consular assistance policy, preventative campaign and crisis response strategy.

The meeting was held at Cuenca’s Public Security Council offices and generated a successful dialogue between the Embassy and local authorities on how best to work together to assist British nationals in Cuenca, both tourists and residents.
