At the Consulate, we work closely with the Embassy of Ireland in London and with Irish state agencies to promote trade, tourism and inward investment.
We work closely with the Embassy of Ireland in London and with key Irish state agencies to promote trade, tourism, and inward investment. With offices in Britain focused on inward investment and Irish exports across sectors, Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland, the Irish Food Board, and Tourism Ireland are part of our Local Market Team. This team works together to maximise opportunities for Irish business interests.
We also work with an invaluable existing network within the Irish community in Scotland and the rest of Britain. A number of key partnerships have formed with Irish business networks, which promote Irish business and economic interests through key contacts and business links in Scotland, the rest of Britain, and globally.
Causeway: Ireland-Scotland Business Exchange
The Consulate also works closely with Causeway: Ireland-Scotland Business Exchange (formerly the Irish Business Network Scotland), which was launched by Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Paschal Donohoe T.D. in Edinburgh Castle in June 2016. This organisation was established with a view to connecting senior professionals and entrepreneurs from across Scotland and Ireland in order to help develop business and economic cooperation, and it is supported by both the Irish and Scottish Governments.
