Doing Business with Ireland

The Embassy works to promote trade, investment and tourism.

In 2013, Ireland’s merchandise exports to Greece were valued at over €270 million (more than Brazil, South Africa or Malaysia). When the substantial services exports are included, it becomes clear that Greece is a very important market for Irish companies.

As Greece emerges from a lengthy period of recession, we hope to build on that success and continue to grow our relationship.  

We can:

  • Support Irish companies who 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

Embassy of Ireland

We work to promote trade, inward investment and tourism. The Ambassador and all the staff are available to assist Irish companies operating in or trading with Greece. The Embassy also works with a range of business organisations and networks with a view to supporting and assisting our trade, inward investment and tourism interests. We can also put you in touch with Irish State Agencies should you need their services.

If you are interested in the Greek market, get in touch through our Contact Us page.
