The bilateral relations between Portugal and China have been influenced by the regional bet of both nations: Portugal's full integration in the European Union; China's recent effort to further a economic integration of East Asia and South Asia around the concept of ASEAN Plus something. These intraregional and separated agendas made Sino-Portuguese Relations aleatory, unsystematic and diffuse. This gentle but non-substantial relationship is expected to continue in the next years, although the political rhetoric both from China and Portugal point the other direction.
