Polish-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce awarded The Best Portuguese Bilateral Chamber of Commerce in The World
During the 8th Annual Meeting of 52 Portuguese Chambers of Commerce in Marrakesh on March 20th 2019, the Polish-Portuguese Chamber of Commerce was awarded the prize of the Best Portuguese Bilateral Chamber of Commerce in The World for its activities in 2018.
For the first time, PPCC received this award for its activities in 2014, this time for projects carried out in 2018.
Mr. Pedro Siza Vieira, Portuguese Minister of Economy, handed the Award, with presence of Secretary of State for Internationalization. Mr. Eurico Brilhante Dias.
The prize was launched 6 years ago by the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCIP), together with the support of the AICEP Portugal Global – Trade & Investment Agency and the Secretary of State of Portuguese Communities Abroad. It is awarded to one of 52 chambers of commerce for the best achievements in supporting bilateral economic exchange and promotion of the Portugal brand.
This year PPCC was awarded for supporting the internationalization of Portuguese companies, promoting Portuguese wines and food products and touristic inflows, organizing business missions in Poland, Portugal and Brazil, and promoting the image of Portugal throughout 2018.
We are extremely proud and honoured for being distinguished with this valued award and we would like to thank all our Members, the Board and the Regional Representatives in 5 countries for making this possible. It would not have happened without the hard work and engagement on daily basis of the whole PPCC team!
