A five-day Ttade and investment mission to China and Japan involving 36 Irish companies concluded on Saturday, November 19.  The trip, organised by Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland included several meetings and networking events in the cities of Shenzhen, Beijing and Tokyo.

The Department of Jobs,Enterprise and Innovation said that significant leads for several Irish companies were created and progressed during the mission. These included the announcement of a number of strategic partnerships which were witnessed by Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor.

In Shenzhen and Beijing, the Minister hosted two business events with over 160 guests including Irish companies and their Chinese customers. The Minister also witnessed the announcement of a strategic alliance between Enterprise Ireland client Datalex and Neusoft, China’s largest software integrator.

A number of Irish companies also announced new business in Japan. These included C&F Green Energy in Galway, Vitalograph in Co. Clare, CAE Parc Aviation and Clinical Trial Endpoint in Dublin. The Minister met with senior executives at more than 12 Japanese corporations.

Commenting on the Trade Mission, Minister Mary Mitchell O’Connor said: “My aim on this Trade Mission was to highlight Ireland as a hotspot of innovative business and to explore the significant opportunities for Irish companies across a range of sectors to increase their sales to China and Japan. Diversification into new markets and expansion in existing ones is the key to export success for Irish companies and both China and Japan are open to world class Irish innovation and technology. Trade Missions also have a real impact in convincing multinational companies to locate jobs in Ireland and in facilitating Irish companies to grow their sales, ultimately creating employment at home in Ireland”.
