Both countries have done a lot to strengthen bilateral ties in spite of differences in historical backgrounds and social systems. The Portuguese president said that relations between Portugal and China will continue to serve as a unique model for countries with different political systems and cultures to live in harmony. Now China is Portugal’s largest trading partner in Asia, and Portugal is also one of the Western countries to have signed an MOU on the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).

Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture: salt cod and grilled sardines are national dishes, the Algarve’s beaches are a major destination and much of the nation’s architecture dates to the 1500s–1800s, when Portugal had a powerful maritime empire.
