The Gala of the third edition of the Millennium Horizontes awards took place this Thursday at the Carlos Lopes Pavilion in Lisbon, with hundreds of entrepreneurs attending.

39 awards were handed, within a record of 2167 applications from 1035 companies. Catari was honoured with the Internationalization award, in the Large Companies category.

The Secretary of State for Internationalization, Eurico Brilhante Dias, stressed that "The first greeting is for the more than two thousand candidates. Companies and entrepreneurs have mobilized and believe that their achievements are a contribution to the country."

Catari's commercial management, responsible for the leadership of this initiative, also says that the effort in prospecting is continuous.

"It is one more acknowledgement that the path outlined for Catari's Internationalization has been well drafted and that the achievements of the whole team are bearing fruit." highlights Bernardo Tavares Nery
Accordingly, Nuno Vieira recalls that “Nowadays it is difficult to conceive that a company only considers the local market and competitors in the equation of its economic sustainability. A Global Market means that there are business opportunities in foreign markets that are to be considered, otherwise competitiveness might be lost to local competitors. It also means that the local market is accessible to international competitors.”

Catari, scaffold manufacturer, currently exports to over 40 countries through branches and distributors.

The selected companies were presented to a jury, which voted from the companies evaluations. The jury includes personalities such as Nuno Amado, Daniel Proença de Carvalho, Global Media Group president, Luís Castro Henriques, AICEP president, Pedro Pires de Miranda, Siemens Portugal CEO, Jorge Portugal, Cotec CEO, Francisco Avillez, Founder AgroGes, Céline Abecassis-Moedas, Dean for Executive Education at the Catholic University, and Beatriz Freitas, President of SPGM.
