This is an increase of 24% compared to more than €82.2 million (9,063 million escudos) in the second quarter of 2021, and a performance that “confirms the recovery of the economy after the impacts of the recent crises, however, still affected by the effects of the war in Ukraine, which has worsened the price of raw materials, energy, and basic necessities.

Overall, the 33 companies in Cape Verde’s SEE showed negative net results of more than €25.5 million( PTE 2,783 million) in 2021, when in 2020 they were also negative, by almost €34.7 million (PTE 3,795 million), and in the previous year also losses, but of €26.2 million (PTE 2,867 million).
The Cape Verdean SEE has seven companies linked to industry, agriculture, and fisheries, six in energy and water, five in the communications sector, five in transport, four in the financial and real estate area, three in the area of information and communication technologies, and another three in tourism and related areas, but the current government has an ongoing program of privatizations and concessions for some of these companies.
