An English language news service that aims to provide in-depth analysis of the developing economic and political situation in Portuguese-speaking countries, as well as emerging business opportunities with China, was launched this week.
Called China-Lusophone Brief (CLBrief), the service will explore issues of legislation, taxation and investment opportunities. It will profile key personalities in the public and private sectors, as well as survey the general economic sentiment of Portuguese-speaking countries.
Based in Macau, CLBrief intends to identify new routes and opportunities for companies and people while supporting Macau’s role as a trade and economic platform between China and the eight Portuguese-speaking countries.
With a large team of researchers and analysts worldwide, CLBrief will provide exclusive and detailed information on issues of current economic relevance to China’s initiatives, as well as their connection with Portuguese-speaking countries.
At launch, the service included several articles related to the MSAR, such as “A new life for Forum Macao?”, “The Greater Bay Area Initiative: a further step in regional integration” and “Macau businessman forges ahead with bank in Cabo Verde”, referring to David Chow’s latest project in the archipelago nation.
It also features articles on Chinese e-commerce companies in Portuguese-speaking countries, Brazil’s pressure on China to diversify investment, the challenges Mozambique is facing in regaining international investor confidence and the biography of Mozambican foreign minister José Pacheco.
On request, the new service will also produce sectoral reports on investment opportunities in countries of which CLBrief has specialized knowledge, as well as in industries seeking partners and capital.
At the time of publication, CLBrief is offering free-of-charge subscription registration for its promotional launching stage.
