He was passionate about his profession, a communication consultant until the last day. On behalf of the management and its associates, I would like to send my deepest condolences to family and friends” says Teresa Figueira, president of APECOM.
In recent years, all its commitment and intervention has been visible and noticeable so that lobbying activities are regulated in Portugal, within a framework of transparency and duly clarified.
