1. OPENING WORDS
The Algarve has extraordinary products and services, some of the best of the world. But they are still relatively unknown and for the most part undervalued, even though they are “world-class” products.
At the Congress “For the Excellency of the Economy of the Algarve”, which had the participation of His Excellency the President of Portugal, it was decided that a BIANNUAL business event would take place starting in 2019.
So, we are embracing this big project involving the economy and the society thus giving place to the first “ TOTAL ALGARVE PROMOTION” in the history of the region.
BINALG is a key operating instrument.
The President of Algfuturo (José Vitorino)
1.1 BINALG-Investment and Business Marketplace of the Algarve
Binalg is a business marketplace, a “demand and supply” platform where reliable business partners can be found. The Project has a global dimension, with connection to the GAID (Diaspora Investors Support Office), Turismo de Portugal and AICEP (Portugal Global – Trade & Investment Agency), University of Algarve, municipalities, Public Organization, associations, etc.
BINALG is on the Algfuturo’s website and functions as a confidential “meeting point” for business objectives carried out by the ALGFUTURO. Strong publicity is underway, including a visit to the Algfuturo’s Pavilion at FATACIL of the Prime Minister Dr. António Costa (received by José Vitorino and accompanied by his wife, the Mayor, and the President of the Municipal Assembly of Lagoa).
The range of offerings is expected to broaden with the additional participation of the Portuguese communities abroad and countries where they live.
ALGFUTURO offers space for meetings between the partners, and logistics support. Moreover, on base of Protocols as well as transports and financial and consulting/auditory/insurance assistance.
The host countries of our Communities have always been open to cooperation (photo José Vitorino with Senator Edward Kennedy In Washington)
