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.
