Os mais de 400 anos de permanncia lusfona em Goa, faz da ndia

Entre a ndia e a Lusofonia, as ligaes histricas so conhecids, e as ligaes


comerciais so histricas
Se recuarmos ao passado, verificaremos que nem mesmo na altura em que a
lngua poderia se considerar uma barreira para desenvolver negcios, esta
barreira foi ultrapassada e as relaes comerciais floresceram.
"Between India and Lusophone, the historical connections are well known, and the commercial
links between countries are historical"
If we look back to the past, we find that even at the time when the language could be considered
a barrier to develop business, this barrier was outdated and trade relations start to flourished.

Se no passado, j era possvel fazer negcios com a ndia mesmo com a barreira da lngua, e
ento:
O que dizer de hoje, em que a histria tratou de fornecer razes lusfonas a ndia atravs
de GOA?
O que dizer de hoje, com os avanos de ambas partes e dos meios e formas de
comunicao no mundo?
If in the past, it was possible to do business with India even with the language barrier, why:
Today, in which the story tried to provide Lusophone roots to India through GOA?
What about today, with the advances of both parties and the ways and means of communication in the
world?

Goa to host congress of India


and Lusophone countries
December 22, 2013

PANAJI: An international
congress titled India and the
Lusophone Market will witness
entrepreneurs and industrialists
from Portugal and many of its
former colonies gathering in
Goa on January 14 and 15, and
participating in this global
common platform for trade and
commerce between India and
the Lusophone countries.
The event jointly organised by
Lusophone Society of Goa, the
Confederation of Indian
Industry, the Institute of Asian
Studies and Friendship
Association Portugal-India will
be inaugurated by Union
Minister for Commerce,
Industry and Textiles Anand
Sharma in the presence of Chief
Minister Manohar Parrikar.

PORTUGUESE CITIZENSHIP ISSUE


MAY BE DISCUSSED AT MEETING
NT NETWORK
PANAJI: President of the Lusophone Society of
Goa Dr Aurobindo Xavier said the India and the
Lusophone Market international congress could
witness discussion on the Portuguese citizenship
issue. I am very well aware of the Portuguese
citizenship controversy in Goa, he added,
pointing out, Since the Portuguese ambassador in
India Jorge Roza de Oliveira and the ambassador
of India to Portugal (designate) Dr Jitendra Nath
Misra will be attending the particular event, there
could be a discussion on this aspect too. Goan
MLA Caetano Silva has challenged in the Delhi
High Court central governments decision to
revoke his Indian citizenship. This, it is feared,
could result in around one lakh Goans losing their
Indian citizenship, as they have also registered
their births in Lisbon like Silva.

The event will be held at the Kala Academy complex.


President of the Lusophone Society of Goa Dr Aurobindo Xavier told a press
conference that Portugal and its former colonies like Brazil, Mozambique, Angola, and
East Timor will attend the event, while there is lesser possibility of other colonies like
Cabo Verde, So Tom and Prncipe and Macau attending the international congress.
Dr Xavier said that India already has trade and commerce ties with many Lusophone
countries. The trade between India and Mozambique alone has reached US $64
million per year, with coal and gas being the major sector of business, he added,
pointing out that India-Angola carry trade in the area of coffee as well as diamonds,
India-Guinea Bissau has trade in the cashew crop sector, India-Cabo Verde carry
business in the oil segment, while India and Brazil had a trade of $7 billion in 2001, in
varied areas.
However, China has surpassed India in trade with the Lusophone countries, with a
business of US $117 billion in 2010-11, as against business of India with Lusophone
countries standing at only US $15 billion in the same year. And this has happened
after Portugal handed over Macau to China in 1999, he added.
The delegates of Indian companies and Portuguese-speaking countries have
expressed their desire to find business partners in areas such as salt packaging,
fishing material, banking and investment, electricity devices and servicing, technical
assistance in diesel/ hydraulic oil/ generators/ climatization, refrigeration and air

conditioning, welding and brazing technology, investment and financial products, tires
and their recycling, agricultural tractors and spare parts, logistics projects and
solutions, assistance in import-export, IT and software, cold chains and so on, Dr
Xavier stated.
The international trade and commerce congress, besides plenary session will include
major and short presentations and country panel discussions where representatives of
some of the Lusophone countries and India will present the economic situation of their
country. In addition, a face-to-face business networking will create direct business
contacts between attending delegates/ company representatives.
Furthermore, a troupe Portugoesas Musical Group of soprano and mezzo soprano
accompanied on piano will perform during the occasion. A daylong post-congress
excursion has also been planned on January 16 visiting Old Goa, National Institute of
Oceanography and some of the companies at Verna industrial estate.
State head of the CII Geetika Goyal speaking on the occasion said the CCI, through
this event wants to bring the Indian industry to Goa so that lot of business to business
activities can be held during the two days.
The visiting delegations from the Lusophone countries will interact with the CII to
open the doors for bilateral co-operation and investments, she noted.

Lusophone nations can benefit from


low-cost Indian healthcare
Published on: January 15, 2014 - 00:02

PANAJI: Companies doing social business are capable of doing well and earning profits, said
Ravilla Thulasiraj, executive director, Aravind Eye Care System, an eye hospital chain based in
Tamil Nadu.
The hospital chain which revolutionised eye care in India by providing affordable surgeries for
the poor is enthusiastic to replicate success in Lusophone countries, said Thulasiraj, adding
that the south-based chain was especially interested in Angola for a potential ophthalmic
hospital.
Speaking to a captivated audience at the Lusophone Congress, Thulasiraj said that Aravind
Hospitals conducts 1,500 surgeries a day with patients paying only a fraction for a cataract
operation than what they would have paid in the US. However, despite keeping pricing at low
levels, the company is able to make a profit.
The ability to provide service at reasonable rates, he said, is through focus on the demand side
and giving access to eye care to the vast populace of India who live with limited means. The
hospital, he said, has a section that takes on poor patients for free and at the same time also
charges market rates for those who can pay.
With a major chunk of cataract surgeries on account of the cost of lens, the hospital chain has
gone in for backward integration by manufacturing lens, a move which enabled them to cut
down the cost of operations significantly and make it affordable to the poor.
It would be beneficial for Lusophone economies, many of which have a large section of
deprived population to adopt the concept of low cost hospitals, said Thulasiraj. He pointed out
that low cost did not mean a compromise on quality.

India can benefit from Goa's ties with the Portuguese


World
The recently concluded two-day international congress titled 'India and the Lusophone
Market' gave Indian corporates the opportunity to interact with industry leaders from
Lusophone countries. President of Lusophone Society of Goa, Aurobindo Xavier tells NT
BUZZ that Goa could be the hub for small and medium scale industries doing profitable
business with Lusophone countries
How would you describe the notion Lusophonic?
Today, there are over two hundred and fifty million Portuguese speakers in
the world making the language the fifth most spoken language. Besides, it
is also the official language in countries like Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde,
East Timor, Guinea-Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, So Tom and
Prncipe, and the Chinese Special Administrative Region (SAR) of Macau.
It extends to people who are culturally and linguistically linked to Portugal,
either historically or by choice. A Lusophone country may not have any
Portuguese ancestry at all. The Lusophone world is mainly a legacy of the
Portuguese empire, although Portuguese Diaspora communities have also
played a role in spreading the Portuguese language and Portuguese culture.
Why is it so important to have economic ties with other
Lusophone countries?
There is tremendous potential to tap in the market what with over two
hundred and fifty million Portuguese speaking people. If India enters the
market there will be so many business avenues that could be explored.
Even today, there are several large scale Indian companies who are doing
so well.
How can India benefit from the ties Goa has with other
Lusophone countries?
India is undertaking notable advances in many fields such as Information Technology, Pharmaceuticals,
Medical Tourism, industrial and transport products, electronic equipment, etc. On the other hand India
imports miscellaneous goods and services such as agricultural products, minerals, fuel, construction
materials, etc. The trade between Lusophone countries and India was 20 billion USD in 2012 as compared to
the 90 billion between Lusophone countries and China despite China commencing trade in the late 90s.
A lot of people in Goa speak Portuguese, which makes it the common factor. This common factor can
facilitate business and economic relationships. The mentality of Goans is similar to that of Portuguese
speaking people. So, there is plenty of opportunity that can be tapped if the Indian government and state
government are positive and serious about exploring the market and establishing good economic relations.
Goa can be the hub of the country for small and medium scaled industries as the investment will not be huge.
Opportunities can also be facilitated from Lusophone countries, but ultimately it is the government who has
to give the go ahead.
Are there Lusophone countries which are relevant to India, besides Portugal?
Mozambique plays an important geo-strategic role for the neighbouring landlocked countries, including
India. It is important for the geo strategy policy and navigation policy. Brazil also holds importance to India,
being a part of BRIC- (Brazil, Russia, India and China, which are at a similar stage of economic
development). India should focus on improving the south south economic relationship with Brazil.

What was the aim behind forming the Goa Lusophone Society?
The society is just three years old. The aim of the Society is to promote and support the Lusophone culture in
Goa, fostering connections between Goa and the Lusophone countries, and pursuing projects related to the
Portuguese language and Lusophone cultures in fields of arts, charity, education, science and technology.
Knowledge of the Lusophone culture is essential for understanding the political, economic, and social world
with which India and particularly the State of Goa has increasing ties. Our society is interested in
contributing towards the development of the state and providing a platform for global exchange.
Do you think the Goa government will look at this avenue for fostering economic relations
with the Lusophone countries?
Absolutely. I think the Government is doing very well in trying to attract foreign investments in Goa. Im sure
they will help in providing links to Lusophone countries. It also depends on the investment policy of the
government of Goa. I am sure the policy will help contribute to intensify economic ties between Lusophone
countries through Goa. But, the plan has to be sustainable having social cohesion and being environment
friendly.
Tell us about the Goa Lusophone Societys activities?
The society in collaboration with the Confederation of Indian Industry, IdEA Institute of Asian Studies and
AAPI Friendship Association Portugal-India organized the international congress India and the
Lusophone Market. The congress was an important means of acquiring knowledge of countries, their
economy, their potentials and constraints, enabling the participants to get in touch with entrepreneurs in
order to raise the level of collaboration through partnerships between Indian companies and of the various
Portuguese-speaking countries.

Tatas keen on ties with cos in


Lusophone countries
Published on: January 15, 2014 - 00:04

PANAJI: The Tata group would be very happy to work with companies in Portuguese speaking countries,
said Syamal Gupta, special advisor, Tata International Ltd - the trading arm of the group.
Speaking at the India and Lusophone Market - International Congress on Tuesday, Gupta said that he was
eager to do business with countries having Portuguese links and willing to listen to concrete proposals for the
same. The group, he added, already had trade interests in ex-Portuguese colonies like Brazil, Mozambique,
Angola and is keen on expanding its presence in the future.
Going global is one of Tatas strategies in recent years, he said, but without compromising the core value
system of giving back to society. For instance in Africa where the group is present, the local economy has
benefitted through training schemes, women empowerment measures and other social activities.
Known to be a part of the higher echelons of one of Indias oldest and most reputed business house, Gupta
added that he had come as a special emissary of Noel Tata who is very interested in the Lusophone Congress
and who requested him to represent the group. On Tatas presence in the state, Gupta said that they were
never interested in the mining industry as it is environmentally damaging. However, the Goa link is very
much alive through four-five hotels and auto ancillary company ACGL where it has a stake. Making a special
mention of the Honda-based bus-body manufacturer, Gupta said that its progress is keenly followed and that
the company exports buses to several countries in the world.
Gupta spoke in the afternoon session. Earlier in the day, the inauguration was by the Chief Minister Manohar
Parrikar who spoke very briefly. The Chief Minister said that Portuguese relations with India have received a
boost thanks to the forthcoming 2014 Lusofonia Games as well as the ongoing two-day Congress on January
14 and 15.
Keynote speaker Salimo Amad Abdula, president of Business Confederation of the Community of Portuguese
Speaking Countries (CE-CPLP), Mozambique, pointed out that Lusophone economies at present comprise

four per cent of the global economy. But the percentage share can easily touch a double digit figure through
concerted efforts.
Delegates, he explained, are looking at Goa as an entry point to India because of common values shared with
the state. Abdula added that Indias trade links with Portugal goes centuries back and if language was no
barrier to trade in the past there is no reason why it should be a hurdle now.
The Congress is organised by the Lusophone Society of Goa (LSG) in collaboration with CII-Goa. Both Atul
Pai Kane and Kirit Maganlal, president and vice-president of CII-Goa, were present on the occasion. Manoj
Kamat, special advisor to LSG, was one of the speakers. The welcome address was by Aurobindo Xavier,
president, LSG.

Portuguese ambassador for


encouraging trade between India,
Lusophone nations
Published on: January 16, 2014 - 00:28

PANAJI: The two-day international congress of India and the Lusophone Market ended on Wednesday with
Jorge Rosa Oliveira, Ambassador of Portugal in India in his valedictory speech hoping that the fruits begin
showing soon.
Thanking the Lusophone Society of Goa (LSG) for all the efforts and energy in making the assembly of
businessmen and policy makers from seven countries a success, Ambassador Oliveira said that in the new
context of better political relations between India and Portugal it is possible to build relations and further
trade links between India and Portuguese speaking companies.
Commenting on the deliberations, the Ambassador said that a common theme of all discussions was the low
level of trade between India and Lusophone countries. The economic distance between the two was
surprising, he said considering that countries are politically close. However, the Ambassador promised that
in future the Portugal embassy in Delhi as well as the consulate in Goa would go all out to support
collaborations between the two groups.
Bidding adieu to the congress was also Prof Aurobindo Xavier, president, Lusophone Society of Goa (LSG)
who said that holding the event was a daunting task and a fearful prospect as it was being organized for the
first time. The coming together of individuals with business interests from seven nations, he said was an
untested idea and he was unsure whether it would work.
In all about 100 international delegates participated in the congress, he said which although a modest figure
was productive because it was sure to bring results.
Earlier in the day, delegates were busy listening to strong pitch for investment by industrialists from Angola,
Mozambique and Portugal. Several delegates speaking to the Navhind Times said that the congress needed to
be an annual event to monitor progress and follow up on initial talks.

Others like Prof Eugenio Viassa Monteiro, president, Friendship Society of Portugal-India said that India has
a lot to offer to Portuguese speaking countries especially in industry and Lusophone countries would benefit
from tapping Indias expertise. The outcome from the Congress is bound to be positive said the professor
because of several commonalities as well as heightened trust between the two.
A paper presented by Constantino Xavier, John Hopkins University, Washington DC revealed that although
trade between India and Lusophone countries was increasing and stood at US $ 20 billion in 2012-13, it was
nowhere compared to China which had US $ 90 billion worth of trade in 2012-13.
Among Lusophone countries and India, Brazil heads the list in trade followed by Angola and Mozambique.
While Portugal ranks fourth as a trading partner with India.

Lusophone nations seek more from Goa


The Lusophone Congress is the first step towards creating a consensus for more economic
cooperation with India
Ajit John / The Goan
18 January 2014

India and the Lusophone countries have much to offer each other and it is important that they
make a move and interact in greater depth with each other. This was the general sentiment
expressed by speakers at the first international congress held earlier this week. The CM Manohar
Parrikar who was the chief guest said it was an important initiative given that till a few years ago,
Portugal evoked a negative image with memories of Salazar coming to mind. Now however with the
Lusofonia games scheduled to be held later in the week and with this conferences focus on business
the image much more positive.

Salimo Abdula, President of the Business Confederation of the community of Portuguese Speaking
countries said through this conference they hoped to be able to enter into the very lucrative Asian
market. Indian companies he said could enter a grouping that had countries that were picking up
the pace of development. India was a market he said many were interested in entering and this
congress was a start. Dr. Manoj Kamat, Economist and Special Advisor to the Lusophone Society
Goa during the course of his presentation highlighted the attractions of India as an investment
destination. The economy of India, he said is the tenth-largest in the world by nominal GDP and
the third largest by purchasing power parity (PPP), 4th in terms of GDP in USD, 9th as per GDP
according to UN, and 10th as per GDP computed by the IMF. The country is one of the G-20 major
economies and a member of BRICS and is the 19th-largest exporter and the 10th-largest importer
in the world. The results of the Annual Survey of Industries released first week of January 2014
shows that the growth in industrial sector could be substantially higher than what was indicated
earlier. The structural changes that occurred in the Indian economy over the last two decades have
imparted greater resilience to the system and making the economy more competitive. He said On
the economic front, Indias economic engagement with Luspohone countries is already set at an
advanced stage, but lots remain to be tapped. For instance Indian market continues to represent
less than 0.20% of total Portuguese exports. Overall Indias business investment in the Lusophone
countries has shown upward trend since 2006, from the total investment was of USD 3 billion to
around USD 20 billion in 2012-13. Trade with Brazil's had witnessed a ten-fold increase in the last
decade and expected to reach $ 15 billion by 2015, with exports of $5.04 billion and imports of
$5.58 billion, close to 10 times increase in the last ten years. Enhanced trade with and through

Portugal can also facilitate Indias entry into Angola and Mozambique, as well as other Lusophone
countries in which it remains influential at the political level. Indian investors could also explore
opportunities in the energy sector, as Portugal now is the third largest producer of renewable
energies in Europe. Angola has become one of Indias major trading partners in Africa, mainly due
to its massive reserves of natural resources. 5 per cent of Indias oil imports already originate from
Angola, and there is an immense scope for further Indian bids and investments, from exploration
and refinery capacity to supporting infrastructure such as railways and specialized training. The
same applies to the booming diamond industry, Angola being the worlds fifth largest producer in
value and a privileged source for Indias polishing and commercialization segments. On the
important subject of double taxation a start had been made with India having signed a double
taxation avoidance agreement (DTAA) with Macau. Studies have suggested that foreign direct
investment in developing countries with whom a tax sparing agreement exists is 1.4 to 2.4 times
higher than what it would have been otherwise and that DTAAs are associated with higher crossborder M&A flows.
The international landscape had changed with traditional business partners like Spain, France and
Germany of Portugal are not anymore the countries with higher growing rates. Dr. Kamat said
India ought to exploit the positive image it enjoyed in the Lusophone societies. This is primarily
resulted of the tradition of historical Indian migration to Lusophone countries and is linked to the
colonial past, our common culture, heritage and the language advantage. This congress he hoped
would help foster ties, find new partners, embrace new opportunities, and over the advantages of
partnering with this stimulating economy. The President of the Lusophone Society of Goa Dr.
Aurobindo Xavier reiterated that Goa could well be the hub for small and medium sized companies
in the country looking to establish their presence in the Lusophone market. The proposed hub will
help utilize the advantages that are inherent in the state like an understanding of the language as
well as a colonial legacy that binds these countries.
The two day international congress is being attended by senior executives from some of the large
companies in the country like Syamal Gupta, Special Advisor, Tata International Limited, the
former Prime Minister of Sao Tome and Principe Jaoquim Rafael Branco amongst several others.
At the time of going to press this congress had attracted 50 national companies had registered
while 15 from the state had confirmed their participation.

'Vast scope for India-Lusophone business'


TNN Jan 15, 2014, 12.58AM IST

PANAJI: India's economic engagement with Lusophone countries is already set at an advanced stage, but lots
remain to be tapped. For instance Indian market continues to represent less than 0.20% of total Portuguese
exports, said Dr Manoj Kamat, special advisor to the Lusophone society of Goa.
Kamat made the remarks in this talk "India and the Lusophone market: trade opportunities galore", on the
opening day of the international Congress on India and the Lusophone market on Tuesday.
Kamat said that overall India's business investment in the Lusophone countries has shown upward trend
since 2006, from the total investment was of USD 3 billion to around USD 20 billion in 2012-13.
He said each of the Lusophone countries offers a distinct stake for Indian interests, and together they
represent eight valuable votes and a lot of influence on the global stage and given the above potential, the
economic and strategic importance of the Lusophone world to India's interests cannot be minimized.
Brazil's trade relations with India have witnessed a ten-fold increase in the last decade and expected to reach
$ 15 billion by 2015, with exports of $5.04 billion and imports of $5.58 billion, close to 10 times increase in
the last ten years. These numbers include $ 2 billion in export of diesel and $3.4 billion Indian import of
crude oil. So, in 2012, $5.4 billion accounts for oil trade out of total $10.6 billion - over 50 per cent and, 76
per cent of Indian imports from Brazil were crude oil, sugar and soya.
The good news is the increase in pharmaceutical, fertilizers and chemicals exports to Brazil from India which
together is now close to $ 1 billion along with auto components and electrical and mechanical equipments
have also seen good growth, so have textiles and fibres exports, Kamat said.
Enhanced trade with and through Portugal can also facilitate India's entry into Angola and Mozambique, as
well as other Lusophone countries in which it remains influential at the political level. Indian investors could
also explore opportunities in the energy sector, as Portugal now is the third largest producer of renewable
energies in Europe.
Angola has become one of India's major trading partners in Africa, mainly due to its massive reserves of
natural resources. 5 per cent of India's oil imports already originate from Angola, and there is an immense
scope for further Indian bids and investments, from exploration and refinery capacity to supporting
infrastructure such as railways and specialized training, Kamat said.
Mozambique's natural resources like coal and offshore gas) have attracted several major public (ONGC,
GAIL) and private investments from India and this is perhaps one of the few African countries in which India
has been able to compete with China in terms of influence.
Kamat said that the smaller Lusophone countries also offer distinct opportunities for India. There are
substantial resources such as oil and gas reserves in the Timor Sea (jointly explored with Australia) and oil
reserves in Sao Tome and Principe (with Nigeria) where important Indian investments are at stake (Reliance
and ONGC).

por isso realizou-se, nos dias 14 e 15, o congresso internacional ndia e o Mercado Lusfono,

Questionada sobre o papel que a ndia pode desempenhar neste contexto, uma vez que Macau j

secretria-geral adjunta do Frum Macau, prefere destacar a importncia das regies de Goa,

A PLATAFORMA INDIANA
agncia Lusa, Aurobindo Xavier, presidente da SLG, disse que o congresso pretendeu ser uma
oportunidade para criar uma plataforma comum entre a ndia e esses pases, a fim de ser um
aglutinador para que os diversos participantes empresariais tenham contactos directos. J existe

uma relao bilateral entre a ndia e cada um dos pases de lngua oficial portuguesa, mas o que no
existe, e esse o foco do nosso congresso, uma plataforma comum entre a ndia e os pases
lusfonos, como existe a confederao empresarial dos pases lusfonos, no mbito da CPLP, ou
seja, no h uma cooperao entre a ndia e os lusfonos como um todo.
No encontro estiveram reunidas empresas e diversas entidades de Angola, Moambique, Portugal e
Brasil, e tambm da prpria ndia, tudo para se estabelecer um contacto directo para a criao de
futuros negcios.
Mais do que contactos estreitos entre empresrios, o congresso promoveu ainda a realizao de
diversas palestras, cujas temticas abordaram diversas perspectivas socioeconmicas dos pases
falantes de portugus.
Segundo Aurobindo Xavier, a ndia tem seguido uma intensiva busca de negcios em cada um dos
pases lusfonos, particularmente os maiores (Brasil, Angola e Moambique) porque descobriu que
esse eixo no hemisfrio sul traz vantagens em termos de cooperao bilateral e explorao dos
recursos naturais desses pases.
O responsvel pela SLG deu ainda como exemplo o facto de 5% das necessidades petrolferas da
ndia serem provenientes de Angola, embora isso no esteja reflectido nas estatsticas oficiais
porque os negcios so feitos atravs de empresas intermedirias provenientes de pases terceiros e
lembrou os vrios acordos bilaterais estabelecidos com Moambique. Os acordos comerciais
existem tambm com Portugal e Guin-Bissau.

Eugnio Viassa Monteiro
atraco que Goa exerce
sobre o resto da ndia e
em muitas comunidades
estrangeiras talvez resulte de
ser um refgio para descanso
e encontro consigo mesmo.
Os turistas indianos so perto
dos 3 milhes anuais; e os
estrangeiros mais de 700 mil,
com estadas habitualmente
longas. Por que atrai tanto Goa? Talvez
pelos mesmos factores que levaram os
portugueses a estabelecerem a a sua
base de operaes em 1500, depois de
conquistada e reconquistada: na altura
j Goa era um entreposto comercial
importante onde os mercadores iam
abastecer-se; um local privilegiado com
bons portos, uma vegetao luxuriante,
bom clima e pessoas perspicazes, afveis no
trato, e com grande curiosidade intelectual.
O tratamento dos portugueses e dos
missionrios foi de extremo cuidado, ao
darem-se conta de que era populao
evoluda, astuta, que nem sempre dizia a
verdade para desorientar os ocupantes.
Tinham grande facilidade de aprender,
como referiu S. Francisco Xavier. De
qualquer modo, a Goa de hoje tem algo
muito marcante, resultado do encontro
de culturas, que se nota no modo de ser e
comportar das pessoas, na arquitectura das
suas igrejas e casas, densamente espalhadas
por toda a Goa, na culnria, na poesia e
prosa, nos estilos de vida sossegada e
despreocupada atribuda ao estilo bem
portugus.
Vem isto propsito do congresso A
ndia e o Mercado Lusfono (1), marcado
para os dias 14 e 15 de Janeiro de 2014,
que tem criado entusiasmo e adeso de
portugueses, angolanos, moambicanos,
etc. Caiu como surpresa que algum se
lembrasse de promover o congresso em
Goa, onde a lusofonia tem fortes raizes,
pois foi o apogeu da epopeia martima
portuguesa e da sua obra missionria.

O congresso juntar gente de negcios


em busca de oportunidades, numa ndia
que continua a crescer muito bem. Em
variados painis e colquios discutiro as
capacidades, realizaes e projectos de
cada um dos pases, tudo numa ptica de
colaborao mtua. O local emblemtico,
a Kala Academy, em Pangim, do Arquitecto
Charles Correa, autor tambm da sede
da Fundao Champalimaud, em Lisboa.
O congresso incluir um passeio no rio
Mandovi e um sarau de msica de fuso
goesa e de fados.
O futuro estar sempre presente na mira
de estabelecer
pontes mais fortes
de ligao entre os
pases interessados.
Previsto espao
e tempo para
networking e
conhecimento
de instituies e
empresas. Tanto
antes e depois
do congresso, h
possibilidades de
visitas s entidades
de escolha:
Hospitais dedicados
ao turismo de

Highlight on Lusophone nations


December 22, 2013
teamherald@ herald-goa. com
PANJIM:
Lusophone Society of Goa (LSG) president Aurobindo Xavier on Saturday expressed concern over
the declining business relations between India and Lusophone (Portuguese- speaking) countries
saying that the potential of trade between India and the Portuguese- speaking countries having a
population of 250 million has not been tapped fully.

Addressing media persons Saturday morning, Xavier said that though a huge Indian population
has settled Lusophone countries for economic gain, the actual business or market has not
flourished, while announcing maiden two- day international congress titled India and the
Lusophone Market scheduled to take place on January 14 and 15, 2014, with an aim to give Indian
corporates the opportunity interact with industry leaders from Lusophone countries.
The congress would be inaugurated at the hands of Union Minister for Commerce and Industry
Anand Sharma, Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar, Portuguese Ambassador to India Jorge Rosa
de Oliveira and Indian Ambassador to Portugal Dr Jitendra Nath Misra.
Since Goa was liberated in 1961 from the Portuguese colonial rule, it took nearly 25 to 30 years to
stabilize the political and economic relationship between India and the Lusophone countries,
Xavier said adding that Goa could be a window for Indian states to enter into trade with Lusophone
countries.
He pointed out that Indias business investment in the Lusophone countries has shown upward
trend since 2006, where the total investment was of USD 3 billion. In 2010- 11 it increased to USD
15 billion and in 2012- 13 it was USD 20 billion.
More responsible business can foster more growth in India and the Portuguese speaking
countries, Xavier said.
Organized by LSG in collaboration with Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), Institute of Asian
Studies (IdEA) and Friendship Association Portugal- India (AAPI), the conference will focus on
India and the markets of the Portuguesespeaking countries of Angola, Brazil, Cape Verde, East
Timor, Guinea- Bissau, Mozambique, Portugal, Sao the Chinese special administrative region
(SAR) of Macau.

He said that the congress would be a first attempt to establish a global common platform for India
and Lusophone countries.
The congress would contribute to enhance economy, trade and social cohesion in India, he added.
Xavier said that certain Indian companies and the Lusophone countries have expressed their desire
to find business partners in the field of banking, investment, agriculture, logistics, IT, electricity
amongst others.
