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.
