Prime Minister José Maria Neves will be in Boston, Massachusetts, on Monday, September 30, to attend a forum with the aim of promoting bilateral trade and investment on the part of American entrepreneurs in Cape Verde. The singular event, promoted by the two countries, aims to position Cape Verde as a business center for West Africa, and will serve as an opportunity for Cape Verdean business owners and investors to become more familiar with AGOA, a program created more than two decades ago by the United States government to provide African countries with tariff- and quota-free access to the US market (A Semana).
As long as they fit in with reality, clusters are a good investment for the Cape Verdean government, according to Pascal Lamy, Director-General of the World Trade Organization. As he prepared to step down from the office after two consecutive terms at the helm of the WTO, the former European Commissioner for Trade under the presidency of Romano Prodi and influential member of the French Socialist Party visited Cape Verde. While in the city of Praia, Lamy confessed his admiration for this archipelago of the Atlantic which has proved capable of overcoming structural difficulties and serves as an example of good governance in Africa (A Semana).

Ulisses Correia e Silva, the chairman of opposition party MpD, has recommended a wider-reaching approach to the business sector in Cape Verde in order to give the country an economy with the capacity to continually increase its export volume, create businesses and jobs, renew the business fabric, attract foreign investment and spur business in other sectors and services. The MpD leader, who spoke to A Semana Online following a visit to the Business Development and Innovation Agency (ADEI), said that the government’s fiscal policy should also be general and wide-reaching and much more favorable than it currently is.
The President of the Movement for Democracy (MpD – opposition party) also advocated the need to endow Cabo Verde Investimentos (CI) of “more human and budgetary resources to invest and play well its role”. Ulisses Correia e Silva said the institution needs to have all the articulation institutional conditions to operate as a one-stop shop for investors (Inforpress).
