Portugal Is The Place For You

Portuguese explorer and trader Jorge Álvares (died July 8, 1521) is credited as the first European explorer to have reached China and Hong Kong by sea after making first contact on Asian soil in Guangdong, Southern China in May 1513.

Now the circle is being completed as Chinese investors are beginning to see Portugal—on the far West coast of Europe—as the perfect place to live and to pursue their businesses within the European Economic Community and all the markets that this opens up for them.
