The programme to promote exchange and trade cooperation of young entrepreneurs from China and the Portuguese-speaking countries launched by the Macau Economics Service (DSE) is intended to encourage young people to travel to Portugal to understand the local market, according to an official press release.
The programme now launched, the statement said, is intended to provide opportunities for young entrepreneurs to enter Portugal’s Startup Factory, further boosting exchange and trade cooperation among the young people of China and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
The programme has two parts: 1) Free entry in the Second Home Lisbon work spaces for between 30 days and 90 days, which may be renewed upon request; 2) participation in training courses and use of advisory services provided to the participants by the “Startup Factory” in Portugal and participation in local commercial and social contact activities.
The DSE statement notes that the Government of Macau will continue to foster exchange and cooperation between young entrepreneurs from China and the Portuguese-speaking countries as well as making efforts to provide basic facilities and quality support services for young entrepreneurs through the “Centre for Innovation and Entrepreneurship Exchange for Young People from China and the Portuguese-speaking Countries.”
It also intends to provide a platform for joint innovation and entrepreneurship by young people from Mainland China, Portuguese-speaking countries and Macau and joint exploration of integrated regional development spaces, in order to strengthen the role of Macau as a services platform for trade cooperation between China and the Portuguese-speaking countries.
