Asia offers significant opportunities for Irish companies. Ibec member feedback highlighted that this is an area of huge importance however, people are time poor and unable to spend time travelling and attending meetings. Hence, this online network was developed to provide an innovative way for companies to gain information and understanding of trade in Asia. It is open to any Ibec member.
The network works by:
- improving the flow of market information on Asian countries with regular updates on key market developments. Members are encouraged to identify an area of interest or view one of the information updates
- facilitating contact between companies interested in the region via networking events
- helping to break down trade and investment barriers by identifying issues that can be raised by Ibec with national and international governments and agencies.
Asia market updates - read articles about key market developments e.g. trade flows, growth, currency, investment etc. and provide feedback directly to Ibec.
European policy - read collated information from the European Commission and BusinessEurope relevant to Europe's relationship with Asia.
Events and conferences - network and improve your knowledge of international trade opportunities by attending upcoming events.
