The Minister for Employment and Small Business and TD for Clare, Pat Breen began a five-day trade mission to India on Tuesday, November 15, according to Enterprise Ireland. The trip, which will see Breen visit Mumbai, Bengaluru and New Delhi, is intended to develop trade and political links between Ireland and India.

The programme of official meetings officially launched with Breen ringing the bell at the start of trading on the Bombay Stock Exchange in Mumbai  earlier today.

The trip was launched, in part, to respond to the challenges posed by the Brexit referendum. “The Indian economy is the seventh-largest economy in the world in terms of GDP and has a growing population,” Breen said, “We see opportunities to grow Irish exports to India, to position Ireland as an ideal location for FDI and for Indian students to come to Ireland to study English”.

Breen’s last day will include travel to New Delhi where the focus will be on the aviation sector. Meetings with senior aviation industry executives including the CEO of Air India as well as India’s Civil Aviation Minister will be on the agenda.

The Minister will end his the trip by visiting the Irish education student fair in New Delhi where 14 Irish Institutes will present their offer to Indian students considering international study options.
