Irish Software and Technology Companies Jet Off on Enterprise Ireland Trade Mission to India



ENTERPRISE_IRELAND_INDIA.pngThe Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mr Richard Bruton T.D. is leading an Enterprise Ireland trade and education mission of 9 Irish companies and 13 universities and institutes of technology to India this week.



The trade mission has been organised because of the high growth potential for Irish exports to India and as a direct response to growing interest in the market. Over 30 Irish companies, ranging from software and IT to construction services to higher education, have their own offices in India, and a further 100 Irish companies are working with Enterprise Ireland in the early stages of selling to this market. This growing level of engagement has resulted in a doubling of Enterprise Ireland client exports to India over the last three years to more than over €50m.



Even though Ireland is at an early stage in the development of its economic ties with India, the key objective of the trade mission is for Minister Bruton to meet key Indian political leaders and corporate decision makers to endorse and promote Irish companies and Irish products and services, including Ezetop, Daon and Tango Telecom, all of whom are accompanying Minister Bruton. The Minister will also lead groups of Irish companies in key corporate presentations to promote their products and services to potential Indian partners and buyers.



Speaking ahead of the mission Minister Bruton said: "India is rapidly transforming into a global economic powerhouse and has moved into a central position, not just as one of the key engines of growth in Asia, but as a key player in global trade. As a result, India is increasing in prominence in the export strategies of Irish companies and institutions, who recognise India's emergence as one of the most powerful economies in the world.

"The continued steady growth of Irish exports to India represents an excellent performance and there are significant further opportunities for increased trade and partnership between Irish and Indian organisations."



India has been identified as a priority market for international students in Ireland's education strategy "Investing in Global Relationships" and so education forms a key focus of the trade mission, and following on from the mission to India, Minister Bruton will travel to Saudi Arabia to support an education mission of Ireland's leading universities and institutes of technology, to promote Irish higher education in Saudi Arabia.
