Team Ireland in Turkey

The Embassy in Ankara and the Honorary Consulates in Antalya and Izmir work with Enterprise Ireland to promote Ireland's trade and investment objectives.

Enterprise Ireland (EI) is the government organisation responsible for developing and growing Irish enterprises in world markets. It has a network of nine regional offices throughout Ireland and over 30 international locations.

The Embassy of Ireland and the Honorary Consulates in Turkey work closely with EI to promote trade, tourism and inward investment. 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.
