Week in review

The ECB has sent equity markets up and the euro as president Draghi stated that the quantitative easing programme may last beyond 2016. The share limit on individual bond issuance purchases has also been raised from the initial limit of 25% to 33%, subject to a case-by-case verification that this would not create a situation whereby the Eurosystem would have blocking minority power, in which case the issue share limit would remain at 25%.

Business in Portuguese, Bloomberg London, Tuesday 31st October 2017

The Portuguese Chamber of Commerce in the UK organised the second edition of the Business in Portuguese conference in London on Tuesday 31st October.  Each year the conference discusses different aspects of doing business in Portuguese-speaking countries, and this year it was sponsored by the international law firm Cuatrecasas, Goncalves Pereira.

Across the globe Lusophone countries cover a land mass the size of Canada and contain over 290m people – indeed Portuguese is currently the third most used language on Facebook, the sixth most spoken language in the world, and the first most spoken language in the southern hemisphere. The emerging markets of Brazil, Angola and Mozambique, in particular, offer outstanding business opportunities, but also significant challenges.

At this conference, two panels discussed financing businesses in Lusophone countries, and then the problems of sustainability and good governance in these markets.

2016 – A year in view

Chamber members now total 137, with 19 new company and individual members having joined us during 2016. These include companies from diverse fields like investment banking, steel construction, wealth managers, psychologists, consumer marketing, interior design and refurbishment, as well as specialist property insurers. There is no question that the UK market is key to Portugal’s export-led recovery.

In 2016 the Chamber organised 27 events, among which were two large conferences, three large receptions or gala dinners, four specialist seminars and eight events in Portugal. 

This compares with 25 events organised by us in 2015, but with the important addition of the “Business in Portuguese” conference which we organised at Bloomberg’s European headquarters in London in June 2016. This attracted an audience of 100+ financiers and investors, who discussed Portugal’s role in Portuguese-speaking Africa and Latin America. We believe this conference will be an important addition to our events calendar going forward. 

Other highlights of 2016 were

Week in review: All about Greece

Following weeks of intense negotiations to extend the bailout programme, talks collapsed last week, as Greek PM Tsipras called for a referendum on the measures required by Greece's creditors, due to take place on Sunday 5 July. A bailout extension until the day of the referendum was rejected. Anyway, PM Tsipras has sent a new request which was leaked this morning by the FT and a temporary extension may yet be agreed on, though that is unlikely.

Following these news the ECB decided on Sunday to leave unchanged the amount of lending to Greek banks under its emergency lending facility (ELA) at the same level as Friday 26th. In order to avoid a bank run and the collapse of the financial system that is currently under significant stress, the Government has imposed capital controls, closing banks until after the referendum, forbidding withdrawals over 60 euros daily and pre-approval of all transfers to accounts abroad. The European Commission has considered these measures appropriate to contain the short term risks to the financial sector but request that capital controls be lifted as soon as possible.
