Agência para o Investimento e Comércio Externo de Portugal


More than 230 sq. meters of Portuguese cork by Amorim Cork Insulation cover the Portuguese pavilion at the 2021 Yangzhou International Horticulture Expo, which opened earlier this month in the Jiangsu Province in China.

Over 11 million visitors are expected to visit the site over the next 6 months, experiencing and learning more about green living, sustainability and horticulture.

Under the theme: “Live Green, Live Better” the expo focuses on the relationship between people and nature and the importance of preserving the environment to achieve sustainable economic growth. Thus, the choice of Portuguese cork, a truly ecological and equally sustainable raw material, for the construction of the Portugal pavilion at the exhibition. In addition to the cork building, the Portuguese installation also has a garden that celebrates the best of Portuguese creativity and design and highlights the green economy and the preservation of the environment. 


To build the pavilion, 233 square meters of cork board were placed on the façade in less than 10 days. Following the success and recognition of the Portuguese Pavilion at the 2010 Shanghai World Expo, this is another great moment for cork in China!
