As part of the celebrations surrounding the AIP's 180th anniversary



Jorge Oliveira, former State Secretary for Internationalisation, accompanied the committee composed of the Board and entrepreneurs members of the AIP visiting Bluepharma in Coimbra last Wednesday, 24 May 2017, as part of the celebrations surrounding the AIP's 180th anniversary.

The former State Secretary for Internationalisation, Jorge Oliveira, spoke up for new destinations for the Portuguese exports, and highlighted that language is not an impediment to targeting that goal.

"Language is not something that inhibits us", said Jorge Oliveira in Coimbra during the visit to Bluepharma's headquarters, as part of the commemorations of the 180th anniversary of the Portuguese Industrial Association (AIP).

The president of the AIP, José Eduardo Carvalho, underscored the fact that Bluepharma, where 450 people work, is among the companies that continued to develop "during the adjustment period", the "Troika's" bailout programme for Portugal.

Thanks to the investment in the upgrade of the facilities, the portfolio and internationalisation, Bluepharma ended 2016 with a 7% increase in its turnover.
