PNAID is a national programme intended to promote appreciation of Portuguese communities abroad, and the diaspora investment, particularly in the country's interior regions, as well as exports and national companies' internationalisation through the diaspora. This programme is coordinated by the Secretaries of State for Portuguese Communities Abroad and for the Development of Inland Regions.

 

This programme also gathers a set of support initiatives and programmes, seeking to facilitate the diaspora investors' access to national and European funds, through specific budgetary supplements and appropriations for Diaspora Investor Status' holders. Comparably to what occurred with the +CO3SO Employment measure and the incentives towards the productive innovation in the companies located in the interior part of Portugal; the National Production Support Programme has already included specific supplements for these investors.
