The China (Zhejiang) Economic and Trade Seminar was held in Lisbon on the 7th of March, 2023. The delegation from Zhejiang, the province of origin of the majority of the Chinese community living in Portugal, is one of the first official Chinese delegations to visit Portugal in the post-pandemic period.
The Secretary of State for Internationalization, Bernardo Ivo Cruz, was present at the event and reinforced the intention to take advantage of the new opportunities that the province of Zhejiang presents for Portuguese companies, especially in technological sectors.
The main objective of the seminar was to explore possible opportunities for investment and trade between Portugal and Zhejiang and to provide important information about the market and existing programmes for companies with an interest in China and particularly in Zhejiang.
The China (Zhejiang) Economic and Trade Seminar also included the signing of a cooperation protocol (MoU) between the Zhejiang Department of Commerce and AICEP Portugal Global. In the same vein, CCILC signed a MoU with the Zhejiang International Convention & Exhibition Industry Association.
