On Business

Lisbon is an important hub for finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts, international trade, education and tourism. Lisbon’s growing financial sector and the fact that it has one of the largest container ports on the European Atlantic port make it a major economic centre on the continent. The Lisbon Metropolitan Area is very heavily industrialised, particularly along the South Bank of the Tagus river.

Lisbon is the 7th most visited city in Southern Europe, with over one million tourists visiting in 2009. Lisbon is the wealthiest region in Portugal, producing 45% of the Portuguese GDP. The city also has the highest GDP of any EU metropolitan area, with a GDP that is 40% higher than the European average.
