12 April 2016

Guinea-Bissau and Macau are two platforms that can work in a complementary way in two distant parts of the world, saidMonday in Bissau the President of the Macau Trade and Investment Promotion Institute (IPIM).

Jackson Chang said Macau is a platform between China and Portuguese-speaking countries and that Guinea-Bissau can also serve as a platform to explore the West African market.

The President of IPIM, who was speaking at a press conference on the sidelines of the business meeting between China and the members of the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries (CPLP) held last weekend in Bissau, said that this complementarity is just beginning and expressed interest in returning to Guinea-Bissau, to “look into it more extensively.”

The President of IPIM also mentioned “high quality” cashew nuts fand the fisheries sector, as areas that may be the subject of future investments.

The president of the International Chamber of Commerce of China (CCIC), Han Meiqing said in turn that the tourism sector is one that may be of interest to Chinese businesspeople.

Han Meiqing stressed the need, however, to undertake a survey of the potential that Guinea-Bissau offers in terms of quantity and quality before considering investments. (macauhub/CN/GW/MO)
