Porto's Economic Development Strategy, "Pulsar", is presented this Friday
Porto. · 10 May 2022
The Economic Development Strategy of Porto, called "Pulsar", involves a direct investment of approximately 600 million euros until the end of the decade. The presentation is scheduled for next Friday, May 13, at 4 p.m., at the Super Bock Arena Auditorium - Rosa Mota Pavilion.

The session will have the participation of the European Commissioner for Cohesion and Reforms, Elisa Ferreira, as keynote speaker, and the Mayor of Porto, Rui Moreira, who will close the session. The opening will be in charge of the Councillor for Economy, Employment and Entrepreneurship, Ricardo Valente.

There will also be an interactive roundtable with questions posed by the public. This discussion panel includes António Parada, CEO of FairJourney Biologics, Hermano Rodrigues, EY Partner, Joana Resende, pro-rector for Strategic Planning at the University of Porto and Luis Filipe Reis, CEO of Sonae Financial Services and Sonae Fashion, with the moderation assumed by Joana Amorim, journalist from Jornal de Notícias.

The Economic Development Strategy of Porto aims to become a guiding beacon of economic development for the next decade, based on the city's authenticity and charisma. The Pulsar is materialized in 10 projects, which involve a direct investment of approximately 600 million euros until the end of the decade, considering the financing sources of the new period of structural programming. Thus, the unprecedented volume of funding provided and conveyed by the Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) and the NextGeneration EU are a unique opportunity to catalyse and finance future projects that will enable economic recovery, as well as to position Porto and the region as a reference in the climate and digital transitions.

The Pulsar development process is the result of the collective reflection of the entities that have direct and indirect impact on the city's economic development, with the participation of several strategic actors from civil and local society, public and private institutions and the business ecosystem.

Participation in the session is subject to prior registration available online.
