Bomdia! There's a new chamber of commerce in town
For the first time companies in Luxembourg have a one-stop shop to find out more about doing business with Portuguese-speaking countries.
The newly created Global Chamber of Commerce for Portuguese Speaking Countries (GCCP) represents nine countries (Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau, Equatorial-Guinea, Mozambique, Portugal, São Tomé and Príncipe, and East-Timor) where 3.7% (300m people) of the world’s population lives.
The GCCP is a not-for-profit which aims to develop its activities in and for the member countries of this community and in regions associated with the Portuguese language, namely Macao, in China, and Goa, in India. It could represent public and private organisations in and for these countries and regions, as well as any other Portuguese-speaking community, regardless of their location.
Among its goals are the organisation of professional events and trade missions; business advisory services; advice to public and private organisations and governments and bringing together groups and organisations with similar objective to support dialogue in an official, social, economic or cultural domain.
Luxembourg is an ideal setting for the creation of such a chamber given that 20% of its population is Portuguese-speaking.
