The Ireland Portugal Business Network was delighted to hold this informative session about the different incentives and funding opportunities in the real estate and tourism sector that are currently being offered by Turismo de Portugal and IFRRU 2020. Many people have heard about incentives to renovate old buildings or tourism related financing opportunities but in many cases they just presume that it is an impossible task to gather the required information or to reach the right people who can assist.

Whilst Nuno Miguel Alves, Senior Director of the Investment Directorate at Turismo de Portugal did a fantastic job explaining the Tourism 2027 strategic plan and funding opportunities and other credit lines for 2020, the presentation of Abel Mascarenha, President of the Executive Board of the IFRRU 2020 was essential to understand the urban rehabilitation concept as an instrument for the revitalization of cities and the types of support and how to apply to get funding.

Finally, António Lobo, Business Adviser in Santander, explained that Santander is one of the selected banks collaborating with these programs, sharing his experience and how Santander can help.

This briefing session certainly helped demystify many queries whilst also showing that there is still room for growth and plenty of investment opportunities to be taken advantage of not only in the Algarve but in Portugal in general.”
