At a time of economic changes, the motto Portugal Makes Sense at the Hannover Messe in 2022, with Portugal as the partner country of the world’s largest industrial technology fair, keeps making sense, said the Portuguese Secretary of State for International Trade and Investment.
Bernardo Ivo Cruz was at the Global Business & Markets, Trade & Investment stage in Hall 2 of the Hannover Messe, presenting Portugal’s competitive advantages for investing, sourcing, buying, and doing partnerships, and stressed the country’s ability to adapt to changes in the economic climate. “Portugal is a safe bet for doing business and investing”, the Secretary of State said, recalling that the energy transition in Portugal began 25 years ago and that policies against climate change are a priority.
The intervention of the Portuguese Secretary of State was followed by a brief debate moderated by Rita Araújo, Member of the Board of AICEP, and had the participation of the General Director of Portuguese-German AHK, Paulo Azevedo, and executives of the German companies Informa Software and SEW – Eurodrive, Markus Günther and Stephan Meiswinkel, respectively. Informa has recently opened an office in Portugal; SEW – Eurodrive operates successfully in the country since 1990. Both agreed that Portugal is an attractive location to invest, mainly because of the talent and skills of its human resources and recommended the country as an investment destination for other German companies.
The Hannover Messe runs until April 21, and Portugal is represented with the institutional stand of AICEP and 37 companies from different technology sectors.
