Portugal's economy is being strengthened by the country's growing export ratio, with Germany being Portugal's second most important trading partner after Spain. German companies have been active in Portugal through their distribution subsidiaries and production locations since the beginning of the last century. The key investment area is the industry, employing many highly qualified workers. Consequently, motor vehicle production, medical engineering and, especially in recent years, the renewable energy sector have been the focus of German investors venturing into Portugal. At the same time, Portugal is a popular tourist destination and traditionally one of the most important markets for international tourism.
Rödl & Partner has been present in Portugal for many years via its closely associated professional services firm.
