About PORTUGUESE DIASPORA COUNCIL
PORTUGUESE DIASPORA COUNCIL PORTUGUESE DIASPORA COUNCIL There are approximately 5 million in the Portuguese diaspora. The Portuguese Diaspora Council was introduced in 2012. The main objective of the council is for its 24 founding members to create a network of Portuguese elites who live and work abroad. These leading business representatives have become ambassadors for their country, working to improve the image and reputation of Portugal abroad. The council focuses on promoting Portugal’s reputation in four main areas; enterprise and the economy, science, the arts, and citizenship. The Diaspora Council facilitates cooperation between public institutions and the private sector by allowing these business ambassadors access to decision makers. The potential opportunities to influence policy concerning Portugal’s development in the four chosen areas are consequently increased. The Council meets annually to discuss strategies on how best to achieve their goals.
