Doing Business with Ireland
At the Consulate, we work closely with the Embassy and with Irish state agencies to promote trade, tourism, and inward investment
- Support Irish companies that want to find and access new markets, and help with resolving commercial difficulties where possible
- Provide general advice on doing business locally and, through our network of contacts, pursue export and investment opportunities that will benefit Ireland
- Work to secure market access for Irish products in key sectors in high-growth and emerging markets
We work closely with the Embassy in Beijing and with key Irish state agencies to promote trade, tourism, and inward investment. With offices in China focused on inward investment and Irish exports across sectors, Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland, Bord Bia, the Irish Food Board, and Tourism Ireland are part of our Local Market Team. Of these, Enterprise Ireland has a local office here in Hong Kong. This team works together to maximise opportunities for Irish business interests.
We also work with an invaluable existing network within the Irish community in Hong Kong and Macau and the rest of China. 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 Hong Kong and Macau, the rest of China, and globally. We strongly encourage Irish business people or people interested in pursuing business in Ireland to engage with the Irish Chambers in Hong Kong and Macau, the Young Irish Professionals, and the Irish Funds Industry Association Committee.
Some 4 members of the Irish Government's are based in Hong Kong.
