Secretário de Estado da Defesa do Consumidor na conferência «German-Portugal E-Commerce Roundtable»

«It is an honor for me to address you, on behalf of His Excellency the Minister in the Cabinet of the Prime Minister and of Economy, in this forum, which allows the reinforcement of the existing ties between Germany and Portugal. The centenary relationship between these two countries is of the utmost relevance, whether in cultural, social or economic terms. Today, hundreds of thousands of Portuguese citizens carry out their life projects on German territory, while there is an increase in the number of German citizens seeking to live in Portugal.

Existing ties have helped both countries to successfully respond to their main challenges. The investment of German companies in Portugal is crucial due to the number of jobs it creates, the dissemination of knowledge it instigates and the wealth it generates.
