GPA Network Cape Verde

The archipelago of Cape Verde, located in the Atlantic Ocean near the west coast of the African continent, at the same latitude of the Caribbean, is one of the World's most wanted destination, both in terms of tourist amenity and as an investment opportunity. The Country offers not only unique geographic and weather conditions, with its unspoilt white beaches and year round sunshine, perfect for tourism, but also an economy with a sustained growth and a stable politic situation essential to a safe and successful investment.

The archipelago is currently one of the most important growing worldwide touristic and real estate market, stimulated by the local private initiative and by multiple state incentives granted to foreign investors, which opened the trail to an historical growth of investment in Cape Verde.
