Portugal to house new Google hub

Portugal’s prime minister has announced that US-based multinational Google is to set up a new service centre and technology hub for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

The new centre will be located in Oeiras, just outside Lisbon, and will initially provide 500 jobs for highly qualified people.


António Costa said new centre is expected to open in June, with Portugal reportedly overcoming strong opposition to bring the tech giant to the country.


This follows news that both Siemens and Bosch were beefing up their already considerable investments in Portugal.
