The global diaspora network [Rede Global da Diaspora] is in Canada, from November 2 to 6, in Montreal, Toronto and Mississauga, for an international business convention, bringing together more than 150 Portuguese entrepreneurs and Canadians of Portuguese origin.
The Global Diaspora Network is the largest commercial network based in Portugal, with over 7,500 members, representing 10,500 registered business entities, in 155 countries. Its objective is to connect national companies with entrepreneurs from Portuguese-speaking communities around the world, in order to promote business opportunities.
Besides networking, the platform also aims to develop activities in new markets, identify new distribution networks to increase exports, provide new business and investment opportunities and promote the Portugal brand to the international.
The event was organized by the AEP Foundation (Associação Empresarial de Portugal), in partnership with the Federation of Portuguese-Canadian Entrepreneurs and Professionals and with the support of AICEP Portugal Global, and the Portuguese government through the State Secretariat to Portuguese communities.
“The Canadian market has a lot of potential, because it is a developed country, with many business opportunities, where you can find thousands of Portuguese. We believe that the contribution of the Portuguese diaspora to the promotion of the Portugal brand is essential for the commercial success of our Portuguese, in what is considered a market offering many commercial opportunities ”, said Luís Miguel Ribeiro, president of the AEP Foundation.
The program includes several visits to leading Portuguese-Canadian companies and meetings with community organizations such as Portus 360º (Montreal), Casa do Açores (Toronto) and Casa do Alentejo (Toronto) and at The Mississaugua Golf and Country in Mississauga.
The event will end on November 6 with a session at the Consulate General of Toronto, in the presence of Berta Nunes, Secretary of State for Portuguese Communities.
