Who we are
As of September 1, 2017, AICEP Portugal Global, the Portuguese Agency for Investment and Foreign Trade, took over the responsibility and management of Portugal Economy Probe. This completes a 6 year cycle that saw the creation and development of this project as an initiative of the civil society (see just below), starting a new era under the aegis of a public institution dedicated to the international dissemination of information about Portugal.
How we started
Portugal Economy Probe was created as a civil society initiative in July 2011, with no commercial or profit-making objectives. The main aim was to improve the perception that international financial markets had about Portugal, at the time of the financial bailout request, through an easier and reliable search of technical information about the Portuguese economy and its financial system. It was in this sense that the website www.peprobe.com was developed and launched in March 2012.
Meanwhile, this website has become a fundamental tool in providing factual knowledge to those who research, operate and invest in the Portuguese economy. As founders and patrons of this initiative up to the changeover to AICEP, are: APB – Portuguese Banking Association, Caixa Geral de Depósitos, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, EDP, Fundação Oriente, Galp Energia, Impresa, and REN. Since its start, the project has also received, for shorter periods, the support of Banco Espírito Santo, Brisa, Cimpor, Estoril Sol, Luso-American Foundation, and ZON/NOS.
Portugal Economy Probe is proud to have received the High Patronage of His Excellency the President of the Republic of Portugal.
