Team Ireland in the Republic of Korea

The Embassy works with a number of Irish State Agencies to:
  • Promote Ireland's trade and investment objectives
  • Promote Irish culture, heritage and tradition
  • Maintain and enhance our links with Irish communities abroad

The Embassy of Ireland in Republic of Korea works closely with Irish state agencies to promote trade and inward investment. The Ambassador chairs the local market team. 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 in high-growth and emerging markets

Working with the right expertise in relevant state agencies is part of our successful strategy.
