The Government decided in February 2014 to establish a full-time, career diplomatic Consulate General in Hong Kong which also covers the Special Administrative Region of Macau. The Consulate opened in August 2014, and has been working on developing stronger relations with Hong Kong and Macau and providing support to the Irish community here since then. We are also focusing on improving economic and trade links between Ireland in Hong Kong, in collaboration with Enterprise Ireland which has had a presence here for over a decade. .
