Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan lays down Banco de Portugal's goals for the 2014-16 three-year period.


The Plan reflects the mission, values and vision of Banco de Portugal for the year 2020 and takes into account the developments at national, European and international level.

The results and analysis of implementation of the Plan will be released in the Annual Report: Activities and Financial Statements of the Board of Directors.
