Portuguese Prime Minister is in Germany, where he praised the Portuguese agri-food market.
António Costa spared no praise for Portuguese wine during his visit to Düsseldorf, Germany.
The Portuguese prime minister began by “thanking the vineyard in Portugal for the effort he has made“, allowing us to “affirm in the global market“.
For Costa, Portuguese wine “has been gaining increasing recognition and this is what allows us to expand and continue to grow“, which is why the Government decided to establish a goal of one billion euros of wine exported until 2022.
“In the last 20 years, the quality of our wine has changed a lot. We have, in every region of the country, excellent quality wines,” he shot, not forgetting any challenges that may arise.
“The whole economy has cycles, and when there is some global cooling, what we have to do is to cool our engines and make an extra effort,” he said, adding that these changes are “a global challenge” and that “good agricultural management is important to soften “this problem.
António Costa is now visiting the Portuguese stands participating in the World Fair of Wines, ProWein 2019 in Dusseldorf.
