With diversified private and public sector experience, several proven local correspondents and through in-depth work in close collaboration with our clients, we help them identify market opportunities, understand the relevant market rules, be well informed on potential partners’ activities and get access to funding. We believe in an individual and ethical approach. We place transparency at the core of our business, working methods, procedures or choices of correspondents.

To understand your needs and deliver a transparent, appropriate and effective solution: such is our commitment.

The partnership with the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP)

The partnership with the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP)

Since March 2017, 3BS Consulting represents the companies of the Community of Portuguese Language Countries (CPLP) in Brussels and Paris. The aim is to encourage trade flows and promote cross investments between Europe and Portuguese-speaking countries.

3BS provides support-to-export and prospection services, carrying out market studies and seeking business partners for those companies.

The CPLP is a multilateral organisation similar to the OIF (Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie), and counts 9 founding members: Portugal, Brazil, but also six African countries (Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Sao Tome and Principe, Guinea-Bissau and Equatorial Guinea) and one Asian country, East Timor.
