The N-Invest project aims to involve the main public and private actors so as to promote COMPETITIVENESS and to attract INVESTMENT to the NORTH PORTUGAL REGION, by supporting the management of BUSINESS AREAS and providing INDIVIDUAL MONITORING to national and international investors in a ONE STOP SHOP.
In 2017, the Portuguese government has launched the business areas enhancement programme, whose goal is to strengthen the companies’ competitiveness, to enable job creation and to increase the exports. In this context, AEP wants to contribute to the northern region’s enhancement with the N-Invest project, by improving the organization of the available business areas and promoting investment opportunities.
The fact that there is a qualified, differentiating offer of sites to attract new investments is essential for a region with the industrial, exporting, scientific and technological potential like the North of Portugal. The North Regional Coordination and Development Commission (CCDR-N) has been promoting several initiatives at this level, and the main ones are published on our website. We are thrilled to be forming this partnership to establish a link between different regional players, the region’s several intermunicipal entities and business councils, as well as the largest business association in Portugal. We hope this initiative can be decisive to face the pressing challenges of our business competitiveness and our regional development.
