This Thursday, from 10am, the Soares dos Reis National Museum will host the presentation of a study by the Porto Leading Investors project, which will show the economic, social and environmental impact of the group of companies and investors that have been making a decisive contribution to the economy of the city of Porto.


The initiative is organised by Porto City Council and the event will be opened by Ricardo Valente, Porto’s councillor for the Economy, Employment and Entrepreneurship. The Mayor of Porto, Rui Moreira, will close the session.

The study will be presented by Hermano Rodrigues, principal of EY – Parthenon, followed by a round table discussion with Pedro Sousa Rodrigues, advisor to the board of directors of AICEP (Portuguese Trade & Investment Agency), the general director of APICCAPS (Portuguese Association of Footwear, Components, Leather Goods and Leather Goods Manufacturers), João Maia, and the director of UPTEC (Business and Innovation Hub), Maria Moura Oliveira.


Created by InvestPorto, Porto Leading Investors is an investment project management programme dedicated to investors and companies with a high strategic interest and impact on Porto’s economy.


Porto’s strategy for attracting foreign direct investment has been recognised for three consecutive years by the Financial Times’ fDi Intelligence magazine, which ranks the city among the top European Cities and Regions of the Future.
