Luís Castro Henriques, speaking to Portuguese news agency Lusa about the meeting of business people for economic and trade cooperation between China and Portuguese-speaking countries, which starts on Thursday, highlighted the importance of this long-standing “triangular” relationship.
Around 20 protocols are due to be signed on Thursday, two of them with AICEP to “promote and strengthen relations with Chinese institutions to (…) have an expeditious channel to work together with the context” of the Portuguese-speaking countries and of China, he added. .
The meeting, which will take place on Thursday and Friday in Lisbon, will bring together business people and representatives of financial and government institutions from China, Angola, Brazil, Cabo Verde (Cape Verde), Guinea Bissau, Macau, Mozambique, Portugal, Sao Tome and Principe and Timor-Leste.
