Portugal a “Good Platform for Chinese Investors” in Europe and Atlantic, Ambassador to China Says

Portuguese Ambassador to China, Paulo Jorge Nascimento, called on Chinese Investors to look at Portugal as a “good platform” for markets  in Europe and Atlantic countries.

China is one of Portugal’s main trading partners, said Nascimento, underlining that the country joined the One Belt, One Road initiative in 2018 and sees it as able to contribute not only to the development of bilateral relations, but also for the international community.
