Doing Business in Portugal

Man doing business in PortugalThe Portuguese economy has undergone a major transformation since the Revolution of 1974. Its primarily agricultural infrastructure has given way to a modern, service-based economy, in line with the rest of the European Union.

Expats will find that doing business in Portugal reflects this recent upheaval, with a curious mixture of old-school conservatism and new-age innovation characterising the business world.

Portugal is currently ranked 31st (out of 189) in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business rankings, excelling in the criteria of ease of starting a business, enforcing contracts, trading across borders and resolving insolvency.
