Message from the President

The Association
  • Welcome to Business Association of São Tomé and Príncipe’s website.

    The Business Association of São Tomé and Príncipe (”AESTP”) has achieved a never seen growth amongst the associative community in the country since its incorporation. There was a relevant number of successful events that signaled the Association’s path, such as: the conference “São Tomé and Príncipe - an archipelago of opportunities”, held in Lisbon on April 7th; the fast enrolment in the Community of Portuguese-Speaking Countries’ Business Confederation; the organization of a workshop regarding Labor Law and Social Security or even, more recently, the first AESTP Run, which had over 650 participants, becoming the biggest run ever held in the country, in the presence of Olympic Champion Rosa Mota.

    Behind this work is a management team devoted to the promotion of the country’s economy, focused on the needs of the business community and motivated to boost opportunities and businesses between São Tomé’s and foreign companies.

    This page seeks to become a frequent discussion forum with the general community concerning our activities, business or professional opportunities, news and other subjects relevant to the country’s business sector.

    That said, I reiterate our commitment to continue to our activity in a dedicated and professional way, always searching for the development of São Tomé and Príncipe’s economy.

    Associative greetings,

    Nuno Madeira Rodrigues
