Invest Northern Ireland has opened a new office in Hong Kong in a drive to increase exports to Hong Kong and the Southern China region. Mark Ennis, Chairman of Invest NI, said: “Hong Kong and Southern China offer tremendous opportunities for ambitious Northern Ireland companies to export here. The appetite for Northern Ireland goods is increasing. The latest figures from HMRC show that in 2016/17 NI manufacturing exports to Hong Kong and China increased to more than £218 million. Companies including B/E Aerospace, Tayto, Datum Tool Design and Andor Technology are successfully driving export growth in the region. The opening of this new office in Hong Kong will help us support companies to build on these successes and ensure we continue to offer a first class service to Northern Ireland companies.”

This is the seventh location to be announced as part of Invest NI’s commitment to expand its international presence to help companies to grow exports. It will also play an integral part in supporting the agency’s strategy to support companies to increase sales outside Northern Ireland by up to £3.1 billion by 2021.
