The “Portuguese-speaking Countries’ Products and Services Exhibition (Macao)” (PLPEX) is an economic and trade exhibition targeted mainly at companies and organisations from Portuguese-speaking countries and regions. It was established as an individual exhibition in 2017, separately from MIF. PLPEX soon became a flagship exhibition contributing to the development of Macao as the Commercial and Trade Co-operation Service Platform between China and Portuguese-speaking Countries. It strives to capitalise on the business opportunities in the huge Portuguese-speaking market that has a population of 260 million worldwide, facilitating partnerships among over 300 companies from Mainland China, Portuguese-speaking countries and regions, and surrounding regions that come to Macao to participate in the Exhibition. In 2020, PLPEX was awarded UFI certification.
