Intervenção do Ministro dos Negócios Estrangeiros na abertura da conferência «Financing Belt & Road»

«Throughout History, Asia and Europe were linked by communication routes and paths of trade. Along those routes, both by land and by sea, many goods, knowledge, skills and ideas were exchanged. This paved the way to what today we call a network, and back then was known as the Silk Roads. Maritime trade became an important aspect of this network. After the Portuguese explorer, Vasco da Gama, in the 15th century, navigated round the Cape of Good Hope, these pathways and their trade allowed for the establishment of ports along the maritime routes, bringing both wealth and security.»
