TODAY’S SITUATION DEMANDS MAJOR CHALLENGES THAT WILL BE MET IF WE ARE ABLE, ALL TOGETHER AND EACH OF US, TO TRANSFORM THIS THREAT INTO AN OPPORTUNITY.
This is what we have tried to do in the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Strengthened by a history of 180 years of existence and meeting the demands of a growing number of Members, we have positioned ourselves as an autonomous civil society institution, fully independent of political power, that increasingly wants to support companies in their growth and to be a privileged partner for the internationalization of national economy and as promoter of liaison between SMEs and larger companies.
We are a transversal Chamber of Commerce with Members scattered throughout the country, from all the sectors of the economy and of various sizes, that enters in a new phase of its history.
We have now chosen the designation of Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, once it better reflects what we are and what we do, in an agile and closer way to our Members.
We believe in the importance of the role of the participative civil society and of the companies as the driving forces of the economy and of job creation that dignifies people.
This website aims to be a reference tool that increasingly meets the expectations and needs of those who follow in a regular basis.
As Chairman of the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry, I reaffirm the strong commitment of the entire team and my own to safeguard the interests of our Members and of Portugal.
