Why partner with Irish businesses?

Europe’s fastest growing economy

Irish businesses are globalised, forward-looking and ambitious – their partners benefit from this dynamic approach.

One of the world’s most innovative ecosystems

Irish small and medium businesses are the most innovative in Europe and are supported by a world-class R&D ecosystem.

A global technology centre

Irish companies grow up alongside the biggest names in tech, life sciences and financial services and meet the standards of global leaders.

A culture of entrepreneurship

Irish people are renowned for developing business opportunities worldwide and their ambition means a sharp focus on success.

The Irish Advantage

Innovative, flexible and trusted – Irish companies are delivering competitive advantage in key Chinese industries. Ireland’s uniquely open, fast-moving and collaborative economy has developed business people and companies with an unequalled track record of meeting the needs of global market leaders.

As an open economy, Ireland is supportive of China’s Belt & Road Initiative, which fosters connectivity and spurs mutual economic growth. Business partnerships between China and Ireland can also benefit from the country’s committed membership to the EU. As bilateral trade continues to grow year on year, new direct flights routes between China and Ireland in 2018 has also improved ease of doing business between both countries.
