Doing Business with Ireland
The Consulate works closely with the Irish State Agencies located in Australia to promote trade, tourism and inward investment.
The Embassy in Canberra and the Consulate General in Sydney work closely with the Irish State Agencies located in Australia: Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland, and Tourism Ireland. These Irish State agencies form part of our Local Market Team. The Ambassador chairs the Local Market Team whose members work together to maximise opportunities for Irish business interests by:
- Supporting Irish companies who want to access the Australian market
- Providing general advice on doing business locally and, through our network of contacts, pursue opportunities that will benefit Ireland
- Working to secure market access for Irish products in key sectors
- Promoting Ireland as a location for tourism and for investment
We also work closely with Irish Business Networks such as the Irish Australia Chamber of Commerce, the Lansdowne Club, and the Ireland Western Australia Forum to promote Irish business and economic interests through key contacts and business links. The Consulate also links up with members of the Global Irish Network in Australia to promote Irish business and economic interests through key contacts and business links.
