Dr Carlos Costa ,Director of the Portuguese Trade Centre, based in Dubai said:
“Portugal has a tremendous history of innovation and discovery and this goes back to 16th century with scientific inventions like the astrolabe. Portuguese products and technologies are present all over the world, organisations like NASA rely on Portuguese know-how and solutions in no-fail situations, as does the European Space Agency (ESA).”
Portuguese IT solutions bring efficiency and services, and as well as provides real-time, dynamic control and flexibility. In practice, that translates to solutions for banks, transport companies, mobile phone applications that deliver next-gen technology and experiences to users for ATM, banking solution’s, e-commerce applications and even card-based parking solutions.
Portugal also produces world class electrical transformers, advanced biometric payment systems, and the most sophisticated ATM systems in the world which you cannot even find in other developed countries. Portugal has the technology to produce electricity using sea waves. Using state of the art technology they have developed an easy and friendly system to cross toll gates in motorways and all this is happening in Portugal, using Portuguese technicians, scientists and human resources.
