Portugal is a key strategic location for foreign companies wanting to establish a presence in Europe, as well as for individual investors looking for market advantage and a favourable business climate.

According to the 2020 Global Peace Index (GPI), Portugal is the third most peaceful country in the world. It benefits from low rates of crime compared to many other advanced European economies.

Portugal is well connected to the rest of the European Union(EU), benefitting from good transport links and an inter-connected economy. As a member of the bloc, its standards and law are also fully aligned to other member states in matters of commerce.

The workforce in Portugal is highly skilled whilst costs for hiring employees are low compared to other EU countries.

The business environment is attractive for entrepreneurs in a range of sectors. An important advantage is Portugal’s openness towards foreign investors and foreign employees.

Portuguese is a Romance language and is spoken by about 250 million people in every continent. It is the 5th most spoken language in the world. However, in business and academic circles in particular, English is also widely spoken.
