The ambassador of Portugal in Germany, Luís de Almeida Sampaio, assured this Wednesday to an audience of german managers and academics during the years of financial assistance “Portugal has shown that is a country in which one can trust completely.”
At the opening of a conference on health economics in Rostock, in northern Germany, the Portuguese ambassador emphasized that “the most valuable commodity on any stock exchange, rather than oil or gold, is the trust and credibility”.
“We won the most difficult battle, which was the restoration of the credibility,” said Luís de Almeida Sampaio, who in his speech stressed that Portugal has other critical factors of differentiation.
One such factor is political stability. “There are no surprises that may come from Portugal, regardless of the results of the October elections this year”, he said. The ambassador also mentioned the “remarkable social cohesion” and “almost perfect combination of quality training and adaptable workforce” as other factors of differentiation of Portugal.
In health economics conference which started on Wednesday in Rostock, Portugal is the guest country. The Portuguese delegation has about 30 participants, which include representatives of a dozen companies in the Centre region. The Health Minister Paulo Macedo, is one of the conference speakers.
