For the first time, the executive has placed attachés abroad with the mission of attracting immigrants to Portugal. The Minister of Labor assures that they will be valued and will have an easy connection with Portuguese companies.

The government has sent officials to recruit workers from Morocco, Timor, India and Cape Verde. The executive “placed, for the first time, attachés dedicated to labor issues and worker mobility in four countries,” according to a statement from the Ministry of Labor released on Thursday.

In the same note, the Minister of Labor, Ana Mendes Godinho, argues that “the ability to attract and fix workers in Portugal is decisive for the country’s growth”. “The new attachés will play an important role in ensuring that workers who want to come to Portugal are valued and that there is an easy and simple connection between the needs of companies and people looking for work,” she said.

The mission of the new attachés is to establish bridges of contact between Portuguese companies and local communities, to attract and simplify the coming of workers to Portugal, in a regular and dignified way.

In Timor and Cape Verde, the seconded officials will also have the mission to promote investment in training, in the countries of origin, to ensure the training and valorization of workers, according to the same statement.
