AFIA - Portuguese Association of Automotive Suppliers is the association that links and represents the automotive suppliers, both at the national and international level.

MISSION:

AFIA was founded in 1979 as an autonomous association under the 78th section of the Portuguese Industrial Association, and including since 1996 national manufacturers of components, parts and accessories.

VISION

  • Being their representative to the industrial and public authorities and the media, in Portugal as well as abroad;
  • Creating meeting places to increase the exchange of information and to strengthen the relations between the suppliers;
  • Initiating activities to increase competence and support internationalisation.

AFIA is based in Oporto, because by the time of its creation (1979), the majority of the car components industry was located in the North of the country​. Nowadays, the situation is slightly different and these enterprises are located all over the country, specially between Braga and Setúbal districts.
