Advancing Ireland’s prosperity by promoting our economic interests internationally is one of the high level goals of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in our Statement of Strategy 2015-2017, and part of our overall mission statement as a Government Department.

This involves:

- Contributing to the creation of jobs and export opportunities;
- Encouraging inward investment, tourism and education in Ireland; and
- Developing strong bilateral relations to promote our economic interests abroad.


The stories below are examples of our delivery of this goal in 2015.
