Portuguese-speaking businesspeople make missions to Guinea-Bissau and São Tomé and Príncipe

17 April 2015

The Exporters Union of the Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (UE-CPLP) and the Business Confederation of the CPLP (EC-CPLP) is organising a trade mission to Guinea-Bissau on 21 to 24 April and to São Tomé and Príncipe on 26 to 28 April, officials said in Lisbon.

Both missions are designed to provide companies with opportunities to meet authorities, business entities, financial institutions and local businesses in order to stimulate business, seeking out synergies.

The two trade missions will focus on the areas of construction, professional training, new technologies, port management, transport and agriculture, amongst others.

The EU-CPLP has more than 400 member organisations (companies, associations, etc.) of various CPLP countries, giving them access to the organisation of various activities, such as conferences, meetings and fairs.

The institution has also launched an innovative electronic platform that brings exporters from Portuguese-speaking countries together – “Connect CPLP” – which is a business exchange and investment platform for that common economic space. (macauhub/GW/PT/ST)
