Unlock Business Opportunities in Ireland

Enhancing SME’s International Trade Performance

Ireland is an ideal first step market for UK companies. There is strong bilateral trade between the 2 countries and 3 million British
tourists visit Ireland every year.

The UK is Ireland’s most important trading partner while Ireland, with a population of 4.6 million is the 5th most important market for British exports, thus illustrating the signifi cance of geography in facilitating economic interaction.

Benefits for UK businesses exporting to Ireland include English speaking, same time zone, strong transport links, similar regulatory and legal framework, sophisticated consumer market, open economy, used to imports and good perception of the quality of British goods and services.
People-to-people contacts also contribute an important strand to the Irish-UK partnership. The Irish community is part of the fabric of British society and Irish people make a significant contribution in every walk of life in today’s Britain.
