Montevideo wants to become the capital of Ibero-American Carnival:
The raise was made in Spain by Enrique Iglesias (Ibero-American Secretary General),
Fernando Gonzalez (Director of Tourism of the Mayor of Montevideo) and Gabriel Weiss
(President of the Departmental Board of Montevideo).

"The idea is to be capital cities such as Tenerife, Cadiz, Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Buenos Aires and Valparaiso, where there is Carnival. Iglesias welcomed the initiative," said Weiss to El Pais Newpaper from Uruguay.

During his trip to Spain, Weiss also issued its proposal that Uruguay and Argentina are co-organizers of the 2030 World Cup. He met with the uruguayan striker Diego Forlán and he argentinian Jorge Valdano: "Both are ready to create the first committee outside the country of Uruguay and Argentina for 2030 World Cup. Valdano found the idea wonderful," said Weiss.
