The Minister of Infrastructure, João Galamba, said today that he will soon meet with the CEO and new chairman of Altice and, later, with the founder of the group to discuss the main investments in Portugal.

“Right now we have a meeting scheduled with the CEO [executive chairman of Altice Portugal] and chairman of Altice and then we’ll talk to the main shareholder. We’ll talk quickly,” the minister told reporters.

On the sidelines of a visit to CP’s workshops in Contumil, Porto, João Galamba said that it was the investments that the government was concerned about, namely 5G and the data center, and “not the lawsuits”.

Asked if ‘Operation Picoas’ could influence the group’s investments in Portugal, the minister said he hoped it wouldn’t.

“Let’s all hope not. This is a large company which, regardless of the particular vicissitudes that may occur in relation to one manager or another, is a company that transcends this or that manager and obviously has a commitment and investments in Portugal,” he noted.
