The Instituto Camões is an institution created in 1992 for the worldwide promotion of the Portuguese language and culture. The Instituto Camões has administrative and patrimonial autonomy, that, under the supervision of the Portuguese Minister of Foreign Affairs, assures the co-ordination and execution of the external cultural policies of Portugal.
The Institute's Portuguese Language Centres aim to promote the Portuguese language as well as co-operation with different countries in the field of education, including those where Portuguese is already spoken. This is in contrast to Spain's Instituto Cervantes, which is only represented in non-Spanish-speaking countries.
