Portuguese entrepreneurs in Luxembourg
[Empresários portugueses no Luxemburgo]
José Carlos Marques*
This paper is a preliminary study of Portuguese entrepreneurs abroad, focused on the case of the Portuguese in Luxembourg. We characterize, in the first part, the evolution of Portuguese emigration to that country and their integration into the labour market. In the second part we analyse the entrepreneurial activities of Portuguese emigrants and analyse different factors that impact on the creation and development of entrepreneurial practices among Portuguese abroad.
