Edinburgh Chamber of Commerce is delighted to invite you to join a delegation of businesses to Dublin, Ireland.
This trade mission will help your business tap into the business opportunities in Ireland. Did you know that Ireland is the UK’s fifth largest export market and imports more from the UK than any other country?
The UK accounts for 24% of imports into Ireland. In 2018, exports of goods and services from the UK to Ireland totalled £18.6 billion. Ireland is an ideal market for companies starting to trade internationally.
The country offers many opportunities in the following sectors:
Ireland offers many advantages for Scottish businesses with its close proximity, as it is geographically close and shares the same language, time zone as well as a similar culture. Ireland also benefits from a strong and flexible economic environment, highly favourable for SMEs.
As part of this trade mission delegates will receive a market briefing at Dublin Chamber of Commerce office in Dublin, networking lunch with Dublin Chamber members, one-to-one business meeting based on your company requirements with potential clients in Dublin and the surrounding area. You will also have an opportunity to network and explore the export potential in Ireland for your organisation.
Although we are heavily subsidising the costs of organising the programme for the trade mission for those successful applicants, each delegate will be required to contribute £100 non-refundable deposit to secure your place.
