43% of Brazil’s GDP Represented in Business Gathering in Portugal

Portugal Telecom Telecom, a telecommunication company from Portugal with a big presence in Brazil, is organizing a meeting for Brazilian and Portuguese businessmen and politicians in Lisbon, from October 8 to 12, in which 43% of the Brazilian Gross Domestic Product (GDP) will be represented, as announced by the company.

In the year that marks the 10th anniversary of the presence of Portugal Telecom (PT) in Brazil, the telephony operator has joined Brazilian entrepreneurial association Entrepreneurial Leaders Group (LIDE) in order to "bring to Europe, for the first time ever, the largest gathering of Brazilian businessmen, the 13th International Meeting, in which represents 43% of the Brazilian GDP," claims PT in a press release.

At the meeting, two themes pertaining to the economic agenda of the world's most important countries will be discussed: "Telecommunications – A Factor of Social Develop and Integration" and "Bioenergy and the Reduction of Environmental Pollution."

The highlight of the meeting will be the International Seminar, which should take place in October 10 and will be opened by the Portuguese minister of Public Works, Transport and Communications, Mário Lino, and closed by Portugal's Prime Minister, José Sócrates.

The event will count on speakers Zeinal Bava, executive president of PT; Basí­lio Horta, president at the AICE; Hélio Costa, Brazilian minister of Communication; Edison Lobão, Brazilian minister of Mines and Energy; Reinhold Stephanes, Brazilian minister of Agriculture, and José Múcio Monteiro, Brazilian minister of Institutional Relations.

The International Meeting is one of the foremost corporate events in Brazil, and is held in a different country each year, "chosen for their potential for economic, commercial and cultural exchange with Brazil," according to the PT.

Brazil (alongside Africa) is one of the pillars of PT's international strategy. The company controls the leading mobile operator in Brazil, Vivo, in a strategic partnership with the Spanish Telefónica.
