The Portuguese Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade (AICEP) will support São Tomé and Príncipe and its companies in trade relations with Portugal, the President of the Portuguese institution said Monday in São Tomé.
Miguel Frasquilho, speaking at the opening ceremony of the AICEP office on the premises of the Portuguese Embassy in São Tomé, stressed that the opening of an office in São Tomé and Príncipe is “a natural approach towards and support for the many hundreds of companies with projects in this country.”
As part of the inauguration, AICEP organised a conference on “Business in Portuguese,” to strengthen economic relations between São Tomé and Príncipe and Portugal.
The event was chaired by the Head of State of São Tomé, Manuel Pinto da Costa, who in his opening speech called for the Portuguese language to be used as a tool to enhance economic relations. (macauhub/PT/ST)
