ZHANG Hua meets with Portuguese Ambassador to China


 On May 3, CCPIT Guangdong vice president ZHANG Hua met with the visiting Portuguese Ambassador to China José Augusto Duarte and his colleagues.

ZHANG Hua extended warm welcome to the guests and briefed on the economic and social development of Guangdong and the relevant work of CCPIT Guangdong. Both Guangdong and Portugal are coastal provinces and both have long coastlines and abundant marine resources. In recent years, the economic and trade exchanges between the two places have been close. Currently Guangdong is actively working with Hong Kong and Macau to advance the construction of Guangdong-Hong Kong- Macao Greater Bay, and is also accelerating the construction of the China (Guangdong) Free Trade Zone. It is hoped that CCPIT Guangdong can strengthen contacts with Portuguese Embassy in China and the Portuguese Consulate General in Guangzhou to promote exchanges in the fields of trade and investment for enterprises in the two places and promote the development of economic and trade exchanges between Guangdong and Portugal.

José Augusto Duarte pointed out that in recent years, China and Portugal have been in close contact with each other in the political, economic, trade, and cultural fields. Guangdong Province is a major economic province in China and hopes to strengthen exchanges with CCPIT Guangdong to jointly promote the cooperation in trade and investment in the field of energy, food, wine, electric vehicles and so on, to actively play the advantages of the two places in the port logistics, promote economic and trade exchanges between the two places, and build a platform for economic and trade cooperation between Portugal and Guangdong Province.
