Lusophone subgroup of the Trilateral Commission.

Forum Portugal Global (FPG) is an association of Portuguese companies that wish to promote Portuguese participation in the Trilateral Commission, ensuring the representation of national interests.[1] Although still active as of 2022, it has an extremely low online profile apart from some webpages from the late 1990s.

According to the statutes, FPG brings together companies working in Portugal that can serve as an example for modernization and internationalization in their sectors. It currently has 15 partners and 10 equivalents.[1]

The management bodies are made up of the board of the General Assembly composed of three members, the Supervisory Board with three members and the Board of Directors with three members. According to the statutes, the Presidents of the Board and of the Board must be the current president of the Portuguese group, who sits on the Executive Committee (ExCom) of the Trilateral Commission, and his predecessor, respectively.[1]

Those who are or have been members of the Portuguese group of the Trilateral Commission and who wish to do so are treated as partners with the same rights, encouraging their companies to become partners, as is the case with Sojornal and Sarcol. The founding deed took place on July 30, 1996 at the offices of Morais Leitão & Galvão Telles, followed by general meetings at Pleiade (October 16) and Império (November 13) to complete the list of founders, which included, in addition to these companies, Banco Espírito Santo, Bento Pedroso, Portgas, Sogrape, Somague and Telecel. With the adhesion of Finantia, Lusomundo, Semapa, Portucel and the two companies mentioned above, the number of partners was completed.[1]
