The golden visa programme has opened the opportunity to enter the Chinese market in a different way. It is probably the best visa scheme worldwide. My opinion is that the client that today buys a house in Portugal will eventually be interested in doing business and strong investment, as some of our clients are actually doing.
The Chinese investor today has a better understanding of Portugal and looks at the country from another perspective. Language is a key aspect but is not a problem as we work with professionals who speak fluent Mandarin. In July we received an invitation from a Chinese investment fund to establish a partnership with a local law firm. We have been waiting for this big moment and this is now the right timing.
