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 Japanese 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.

Japan is a long-established trading partner for Ireland and continues to grow. In 2016, bilateral trade exceeded €10.1 billion (Source: CSO). The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will pave the way for further trade opportunities, making it easier to do business as prior tariffs and restrictions are lifted and simplified. The sectors that are expected to benefit include services, pharma, medtech, agritech, and agriculture.
