From June 16 to 18, Cape Verde will host a meeting between businesspeople of the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries (CPLP) and China under the theme “Promoting opportunities for economic cooperation between China and the Community of Portuguese Speaking Countries,” Cape Verdean investment agency Cabo Verde TradeInvest said last week.
Ana Lima Barber also told the Inforpress news agency that the meeting is part of the framework to strengthen economic and business cooperation between China and the CPLP and aims to promote business opportunities in each country.
“The idea is to increase trade, facilitate meetings, especially for small and medium-sized enterprises, in order to identify new markets and exploit synergies, taking advantage of Cape Verde’s platform, which is stable, democratic and well situated,” she said.
The meeting will take place in the capital, Praia, with the participation of about 300 entrepreneurs from China, Angola, Cape Verde, Mozambique, Brazil, Portugal, Guinea-Bissau, Sao Tome and Principe and East Timor.
