Portugal “leading the second-hand revolution”

It’s certainly not the kind of goal outlined by the country’s politicians, but according to internet entrepreneur Alec Oxenford, Portugal is perfectly placed to lead the global second-hand revolution.
The co-founder of exchange website OLX, Oxenford is interviewed by negócios online this week and claims that the sustainability of the economy could hinge on the growth of the second-hand market.
Since establishing OLX in 2006, the serial entrepreneur has seen the business grow and expand to 90 countries with 40 different languages and a record 150 million unique visitors per month.
