Invest in Alentejo

Invest in Alentejo, an initiative led by ADRAL – Alentejo Regional Development Agency will take part of an institutional mission to the Portugal Pavilion, in Expo Dubai 2020, from 8-11 February, to present its 6 axes of development and attraction for the Alentejo region, led by its partner entities. These axes are Aeronautics, Agroindustry, Tourism, Ports & Logistics, Digital, and Energy.

Its mission is to strengthen the internationalization of goods and services in the Alentejo region, based on the main areas of the Regional Strategy for Smart Specialization (EREI), with the aim of improving the region’s position in the global market, materializing in the strengthening of its export potential as well as in attracting investment to increase the development of the region.

Invest in Alentejo is co-financed by the Support System for Collective Actions (SIAC), under the Alentejo Regional Operational Program 2014-2020 (ALENTEJO 2020).
