The Ocean Economy in Portugal: An Investors’ Guide
News | 04 February 2020 The Ocean Economy in Portugal: An Investors’ Guide

Worldwide, the ocean economy is becoming more and more critical. This is also true for Portugal, which has a vast coastal area as well as a robust institutional framework for the development of blue economy activities.

In this project, we structured a guide with relevant information for investors interested in developing activities related to the ocean economy in Portugal. The guide contains general information on economic indicators, regulatory, labor, and tax aspects, among others.

Additionally, it points out what are considered to be the areas of opportunity for future developments in the sector, and it includes specific information on current trends, availability of human resources, funding sources and a business and institutions directory for each of those areas.
