Talk: Portuguese speaking Community: A potential asset to London, by Guilherme Rosa.
“The Portuguese speaking population living in London is estimated to be over half a million now, the 3 largest communities being the Brazilians, Portuguese and Angolans.
The latest waves of emigration from the Lusophone countries consist of people with higher levels of education and skills, many of them with degrees and with high expectations, starting their own business being one of them.
This can be an asset to London’s economy and can be a vital tool in strengthening the development and the economic relationship between the UK and these countries, some of them strong emerging economies.”
By Guilherme Rosa, who was part of the team that opened the first office in London of the Millennium Bank, one of the largest Portuguese banks and is currently the manager the London Office of the Montepio Bank. Guilherme has a degree in International Relations and is also involved with the Portuguese speaking community in London, having helped start 3 local newspapers in Portugues, Hora H, Noticias and Extra Portugal.
