Pascal Smet State Secretary of State of the Brussels-Capital Region Responsible for Foreign Trade, AICEP Portugal Global - Trade & Investment Agency and are honored to invite you to a trade mission on 12 and 13 March 2020 in Lisbon.

This mission is supported by:

The Portuguese economy has recovered from the financial crisis 10 years ago, employment has risen at a higher rate than in the other EU countries, the public deficits are in line with the eurozone rules and the EU authorities are now pushing the Portuguese state to benefit from the low rates to invest public money in the economy for the modernization of the infrastructures. The construction sector has regained with positive figures since 2017 with a turn to sustainable construction. 

Structurally Portugal faces the challenge of an aging population. Following the OECD the working-age population decline will be among the steepest among OECD countries, with the number of 20-64 year-olds set to fall by 30% by 2050 compared with an average drop of 5% on average in the OECD area. There will be 7 people older than 65 years for 10 people of working-age in 2050.

To fulfill the needs of its aging population Portugal will i.e.:

  • invest in the modernization and the building of new public and private health facilities (hospital, service flat for elderly people)

  • implement E-Health solutions to improve the efficiency of its health system, face the scarce of nursing personnel and master hospitalization costs.

Portugal has high quality health system, showed by high standard health indicators and a competitive industrial and research sector. The Health Cluster Portugal, with more than 180 members, represents the whole health value chain. 

The Health Cluster Strategic Plan 2030 has 4 main objectives: innovation, industrialization, digitalization and data. Portugal health priorities include promoting investment, attract innovation Centers and clinical trials, encourage international cooperation in devices and e-health and push for a health data lake in Portugal.

The Portuguese construction sector is internationally recognized and is characterized not only by the synergy between innumerous R&D centers, the universities and the companies, but also by the recent digital/technological transformation and the focus on the energy efficiency of the entire construction value chain.
