Bilateral Trade Unit promotes the development of Ireland’s exports by the coordination of overseas trade missions and other promotional events led by Ministers of the Department.
Each year the Unit coordinates a number of Ministerial-led overseas Trade Missions (responsibility now shared between the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and this Department). These involve an extensive range of meetings for participant Irish companies (client companies of Enterprise Ireland) with the aim of developing contacts and/or finalising contracts/joint ventures with partner companies in those countries and also developing an awareness of Ireland as a supplier of world-class goods and services. In addition high-level meetings with Ministers and officials take place during Trade Missions.
Details of upcoming trade events are available from Enterprise Ireland: Trade Missions and other events.
