Presentation Description

Situated by the western shore of Europe, bordering the Atlantic Ocean. Portugal has always been a land apart, on the fringe, sometimes the forgotten hem of Europe. Its identity as an separated nation had established its frontiers as long ago as the 13C, even though there are no insurmountable barriers separate it from Spain. The independent spirit of this small country, was to turn into the unknown world, with its discovery of the sea route to India. It became the first global empire and sea routes connect Portugal to all parts of the world. Began in the early 20C, Portugal began to transform itself into a modern. This proved to be a long journey. In 1910 the monarchy was overthrown. Portugal existed briefly as a republic. Then followed by 40 years of repressive dictatorship. Since 1976 Portugal has finally free itself and became a democracy. In 1986. it joined the European Community. Now for the first time in 500 years, Portugal began to look to a future within Europe. Today Portugal has recovered from the deficit financing policy. It has a surplus in 2016 and the country is enjoying “sustained strong growth”. Today its service sector makes up three quarters of the gross value added (GVA), provided a quarter of the jobs. Fisheries and agriculture has 22% of the GVA and providing 25% of the jobs.
