Join us for this special program exploring trade and investment opportunities in the Portuguese Republic with Ambassador of Portugal to the U.S. Domingos Fezas Vital. Portugal’s economy has been expanding at a steady pace since 2010. Portugal’s export driven economic growth has been remarkable, its exports to the US more than doubled in the last five years from 1 to 2.5 billion Euros. Besides traditional sectors (textiles, footwear, wines, food, ceramics, wood and pulp), Portugal's economy is more and more focused on modern non-traditional industries like renewable energy, aerospace, biotech and information technology.


Entrepreneurship is also a focal point in the Portuguese economy. Lisbon, a hotbed for startups with many government-funded business incubators, hosted the largest European event on innovation startups - the Web Summit (November 7-10, 2016).

Speakers:
-Domingos Fezas Vital, Ambassador of Portugal to the USA
-Olga Benquerenca, FDI Manager
