Why Choose Portugal to Live or Invest?

Today, Portugal has one of the most vibrant European entrepreneurial ecosystems, resulting from the investment made in the last decade in the qualification of human resources, infrastructure, and technology, which provide enormous opportunities for those who want to launch or invest in new businesses.

Moreover, with mild winters and hot summers, Portugal has the best climate in Europe. Portugal enjoys 300 days of sunshine per year!

If we combine all this with the fact that the World Economic Forum has named Portugal the 10th safest country to visit with a relatively low terrorist threat and a shallow crime rate, Portugal is undoubtedly the best investment destination!
