The Portuguese contingent featured a strong display at the exhibition, with a central pavilion and three thematic pavilions dedicated to the Engineered Parts & Solutions, Energy Solutions and Digital Ecosystems topics. These fields mobilized dozens of companies, representing cutting-edge technologies and processes developed in Portugal. Decision-makers who visited the fair, particularly the German Mittelstand and other international companies, grasped the strategic fit that Portuguese companies can provide, through their ability to provide innovation and differentiation.

Portugal is a global player in the Engineered Parts & Solutions area, covering mechanical engineering, metalworking, mobility and automotive, aeronautics and space, among other sectors. With more than 15,000 companies and 192,000 employees, in 2020 this industry exported, goods and services worth more than 17.1 billion euros to more than 200 countries. Major international companies value Portugal’s skilled, experienced workforce, and Portuguese companies’ technological and engineering prowess, which enables them to manufacture metal, plastic, or rubber parts of high precision.

In the sphere of Energy Solutions, Portugal ranks 9th for its global contribution to the Planet & Climate in the Good Country Index. The country is taking determined steps to reduce energy consumption, use its resources more efficiently, provide more sustainable mobility, achieve greater security of supply, and diversify its renewable energy footprint. Portugal is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

In the Digital Ecosystems area, Portugal boasted one of the most vibrant entrepreneurship ecosystems in Europe and is recognized among the countries with the most open policies towards international investment. Portugal is a tech hub for cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and robotics, as well as an international competence pole for autonomous vehicle technology, among others.
