The Ireland Portugal Business Network (IPBN) is being supported by an Irish Cabinet Minister for the launch of its inaugural Sustainability Forum in Lisbon, as part of St Patrick’s Day celebrations, the IPBN said in a statement sent to The Portugal News this week.

Ireland Portugal Business Network set for Lisbon gathering

Irish Minister for Food, Agriculture and the Marine, Mr. Michael Creed T.D., will give the opening address at the forum on Monday 18 March 18, at the Portuguese Chamber of Commerce and Industry - Câmara de Comércio e Indústria Portuguesa (CCIP).


The theme of the event is “Starting a conversation about business opportunities” in SMART Cities and Innovation in Energy - two central areas where Ireland and Portugal share a common strategic vision.


IPBN Chairman Tony Boyle said it is a great tribute to the growing importance of the Ireland-Portugal relationship that an Irish Cabinet Minister will visit Lisbon as part of the global St Patrick’s Day Celebrations. 


He said there is a strong connection between Ireland’s green identity and Lisbon’s appointment as Green Capital of Europe 2020, making ‘sustainability’ an obvious choice for the forum. The event will be delivered in association with Enterprise Ireland, Dense Air Portugal, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland and is kindly hosted by CCIP.


“It is with great pleasure that the IPBN presents our first ‘Sustainability Forum’ in Lisbon,” said Mr Boyle.


“In addition to hearing the latest news and ideas from thought and business leaders in these areas, attendees will have the opportunity to network with others in the field”, added Mr Boyle.


“The agenda covers many aspects of this broad and diverse sector from decarbonisation of industries and cities through to how 5G networks will transform living in the cities of the future. We are particularly proud to showcase three Enterprise Ireland client companies to present on their progress in working in the Portuguese market, highlighting the successful trade opportunities possible between Ireland and Portugal in the potentially enormous global sustainability market.”


A strong panel of guests include Professor Brian Norton from the Technological University Dublin, David Cunha, Câmara Municipal de Lisboa, Tomás Moreno, Head of Transformation at EDP Inovação and Maria Rodrigues, Technical and Finance Director of Lisboa Enova and Graham Currier of Dense Air Portugal.
