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 Korean 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.

Ireland and Korea have a close trading partnership. In 2016, €930 million in exports and €890 million in imports, were traded. 2017 marked the 6th anniversary of the EU-South Korea Free Trade Agreement. The Agreement eliminates duties for industrial and agricultural goods. It also addresses non-tariff barriers specifically in the automotive, pharmaceutical, medtech and electronics sectors, increasing commercial opportunities.
