cada empresa, duma forma “tailor made” e no acesso ao crédito. Nomeadamente no acesso ao crédito, as empresas Portuguesas enfrentavam, junto da banca tradicional Sul-africana, bastantes dificuldades provocadas pelo desconhecimento da realidade económica e empresarial de Portugal e pelo downgrade do nosso Estado e dos nossos bancos pelas agências de rating internacionais. A proactividade do Mercantile Bank e a aliança estabelecida com a AICEP/ Departamento Económico e Comercial da Embaixada de Portugal, acabou por ser fulcral para as empresas portuguesas investidoras e absolutamente indispensável.

na África do Sul, nos últimos três anos e meio, tem sido muito útil para as empresas portuguesas e luso-sul-africanas, a destacar as duas missões realizadas a Portugal para visitar empresas, em 2012 e 2013, que acabaram por resultar em apoio à actividade exportadora das empresas nacionais e ao seu investimento nesta geografia. Via Caixa Geral dos Depósitos patrocinamos em 2013 uma sessao da AICEP em Portugal denominada por ABC Mercados-África do Sul, com dois seminários em Lisboa e Porto. Para além destas acções bilaterais, temos promovido, em conjunto, workshops com multinacionais, como a Odebrecht, para as empresas portuguesas e luso-sul-africanas com interesse em fornecer este Grupo; também com a Câmara de Comércio e Indústria Luso-Sul-Africana (CCILSA), e em breve com uma comitiva empresarial do Zimbabué.

Júlio Lopes Director Executivo do Mercantile Bank

De salientar que o Mercantile Bank tem desempenhado um papel activo na promoção das relações comerciais entre Portugal e a África do Sul, nomeadamente através do Acordo de Cooperação que foi assinado em Portugal, no ano passado, com a Gauteng Growth and Development Agency ( GGDA), e que originou a primeira missão institucional de visita a empresas portuguesas, em Maio de 2013, com a AICEP e a GGDA.
