Porto is acknowledged for its capability to attract and retain the top-talent

Porto was acknowledged for its capability to attract and retain the top-talent by Bloom Consulting. Filipe Roquette, Director-General of Bloom Consulting for Portugal was at Porto City Hall on 23 May to present the award to Mayor Rui Moreira and to formalise the credit of the work carried out by the municipality of Porto in these past years, in a survey that included all 308 municipalities of Portugal.

Bloom Consulting assesses urbanite's quality of life through four indicators: real demand for tourism, trade, investment and talent.

Porto's performance regarding the capability to attract and retain the top-talent has set the city in the official listing of the best cities, according to the Bloom Consulting Ranking.

Porto is second only to Lisbon, in the Business and Visit categories.

Filipe Roquette affirmed that the issue of the territorial brand has seen "great changes over the last few years and the municipal paradigm has shifted; not only it is linked to strategic thinking but also to the acknowledgment of the importance of building a strong brand, like the case of "Porto.", which is supported by "a strategy, and a forward-looking vision".
