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 information and communication technologies, and another three in tourism and related areas, but the government has an ongoing program of privatizations for some of these companies.

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.
Of the total 33 companies, ASA (airport management), Electra (production and distribution of electricity and water), Emprofac (import of medicines), Enapor (port concessionaire), the state-owned real estate company IFH and Transportes Aereos de Cabo Verde (TACV), recorded a 31.9% increase in turnover, totaling €54.1 million (5,967 million escudos).

In 2020, the turnover of the Cape Verdean SEE was over €290.5 million (31,747 million escudos), equivalent to 19.1% of GDP, and in the previous year, still without the effects of the covid-19 pandemic, it amounted to over €399.4 million (43,660 million escudos), then representing 22.4% of GDP.
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.
