Innovative, flexible and trusted

Irish companies are delivering competitive advantage in key Japanese industries such as finance, digital technology and life sciences. Ireland’s uniquely open, fast-moving and collaborative economy has developed business people and companies with an unequalled track record of meeting the needs of global market leaders.

Japan is a long-established trading partner for Ireland and continues to grow. In 2017, bilateral trade exceeded €10.7 billion. The EU-Japan Economic Partnership Agreement will pave the way for further trade opportunities, making it easier to do business as prior tariffs and restrictions are lifted and simplified.

Enterprise Ireland helps Irish companies play an active role in the global market, scale up and internationalise. We carefully select and introduce companies that have the potential to compete and provide Japanese companies with the best choices for their business partners.
