Trade and investment
- The relations between Portugal and India are excellent, the proximity of our history and culture is well-known, but the economic relations are well below their true potential. Nonetheless, the visit of President Cavaco Silva in 2007 gave a boost to the bilateral relationship. Indian groups, such as Wipro and the Tata Group, made acquisitions in the Portuguese market, and today we can see a substantial presence of Portuguese businesses all across India, in varied sectors of the economy.
- From major investments – such as those by Efacec and Cimpor, and recently Brisa - to small start-ups or exports in heavy machinery and equipment, Portuguese companies are looking at India as a sound way to diversify their export markets and internationalize their investments.
Click to see how Portugal is today present in many sectors of the Indian economy:
- Heavy machinery and equipment
- Road maintenance
- Information and communications technology
- Textiles and shoe-ware
- Financial advisory
The Champalimaud Foundation's 'Centre for the Unknown', in Lisbon, is the work of Indian architect Charles Correa. It reflects, with its art and its core function - as no other building probably could - the excellence of the relations between our two countries.
