Invest Northern Ireland is to increase its presence in Australia with a new Regional Manager to be based in Sydney. The announcement was made as Invest NI’s Chief Executive, Alastair Hamilton was leading a recent trade mission to Australia. The trade mission includes thirteen companies from a number of leading Northern Ireland sectors including ICT, Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering and Life & Health Sciences.

Mr Hamilton said: “The Australian market offers Northern Ireland companies exciting opportunities to grow their exports. The latest figures from HMRC show that in the 12 months between July 2016 and June 2017 NI manufacturing exports to the Asia Pacific region increased by 19 per cent to £761 million with exports to Australia accounting for £105 million of this. Northern Ireland companies including Mallaghan Engineering, Mivan Marine, CDE Global and NC Engineering are great examples of companies already successfully exporting to this region. To build on this and support our businesses in this market we are opening a new office in Sydney.”

This is the eighth location to be announced as part of Invest NI’s commitment to expand its international presence to help companies to grow exports.

“I am delighted to welcome Peter Hendrikssen, our new Regional Manager who will be based at the British Consulate-General in Sydney. Peter will have a specific focus on helping our businesses to increase exports across Australia and New Zealand. He will also play an integral role in supporting our strategy to support companies to increase sales outside Northern Ireland by up to £3.1 billion by 2021,” he added.
