BOW Magazine nr. 11 | The Attractiveness of Portugal for Foreign Investment
With “The Attractiveness of Portugal for Foreign Investment” as theme, this issue brings together several interesting opinions that are worth reading. From the Minister in the Cabinet of the Prime Minister and of Economy, Pedro Siza Vieira, who maintains that “investment should be seen as an extremely important factor for productivity in Portugal, and it is in that sense that the ability to attract foreign investment should be valued and encouraged” to Luís Castro Henriques, President of Aicep Portugal Global, who is more specific: “We are evolving from an era of Made in Portugal to Created and Made in Portugal”.
With a more critical position is Luís Todo Bom. The Chair of the Specialisation Commission for Engineering and Industrial Management with the Order of Engineers points out that “Portugal has positive values for the least important criteria (…) and clearly negative values for the most important criteria (…)” For this business manager, “it will only be possible to build a new model with an agreement across the board which changes the negative positioning of the aforementioned criteria.”
Vila Nova de Famalicão presents itself as a strong candidate for the attraction of foreign investment and the company Continental Mabor is one of the example companies, which is possible to know through the interview with its CEO, Pedro Carreira.
France and Italy are the highlighted markets in this issue, counting on the graphs made with Deloitte data to know them better.
