This action represents the culmination of the effort and work of the Go Origin’s team for over 18 months, to which we have been able to add the same commitment of different Official Partners and Strategic Partners.
Initiated in an enlightening and motivating way by the President of AEP – Portuguese Business Association, Mr Paulo Nunes de Almeida, regarding the importance of the Partnership that supports this action, was followed by the same approach by the Project Manager of EEN – Enterprise Europe Network, Ms Céu Filipe, who also highlighted the possibility of all the companies present in this Pro Stock Market, Producers, Traders and Partners, to use the services and the network of the EEN free of charge.
An impressive and qualified presentation by Mr Alberto Ribeiro de Almeida, Manager of Legal Department of Douro and Port Wines Institute, confirmed why both supply and demand can and should value the Porto and Douro Protected Designation of Origin (PDO), such are the development and organization that supports them.
The Go Origin, by Mr José Carlos Costa from Strategic Management Department, opened the 40 Intelligent Markets, typifying them in three profiles: major, development and venture. He also characterized the specific and balanced work of the Pro Stock Market with Reverse Missions and Promotion of Intelligent Markets along with the supply, as well as, with Training and Promotion Actions of the PDO Porto and PDO Douro along with the demand.
