This initiative also had the support of APPII, consultant JLL and law firm Morais Leitão and was launched «as a fundamental tool to relaunch the national economy and, in particular, to boost the attraction of foreign investment to Portugal», it can be read on the note issued this Thursday.
Despite the uncertainty caused by the current situation, Bruno Bobone, CCIP’s president, believes that «political, economic and social stability, socio-demographic conditions, location and affordability continue to make Portugal a unique investment destination in Europe. The crisis generated by the pandemic is global and its effects unpredictable. But the characteristics inherent to our country will allow it to remain a destination of choice for people and companies who want to base their businesses here».
On this point, Luís Castro Henriques, AICEP’s president, further remarked that «Portugal has been under the investors’ radar during the last few years and real estate has been a relevant factor to strengthen Portugal’s image as a destination favourable to investment. Real estate’s international visibility helps boost the attraction of other economic activities, both in terms of industry and services. That is why, the Real Estate Investors Roadmap will be a good tool to complement and instigate the daily work of raising investment, developed by AICEP», he believes.
Now is the time to think the recovery and Hugo Santos Ferreira, Executive VP at APPII, believes «that attracting investment has become a necessity» for the Portuguese real estate to assume itself, once again, as «the driving force behind our country’s return to growth, with the annual raising of significant foreign investment».
