Doing Business with Ireland
As an Embassy, we support Irish economic interests in Portugal. We work with Irish State Agencies to promote greater trade, tourism, research collaboration and Portuguese investment in Ireland.
- Support Irish companies who want to find and access new opportunities
- Provide general advice on doing business locally
- Pursue export and investment opportunities that will benefit Ireland
- Help with resolving commercial difficulties where possible
We work closely with Irish state agencies to promote trade, tourism and inward investment. We also work with the Ireland Portugal Business Network and other networks in Portugal.
