Doing Business with Ireland – In Partnership with the Department for International Trade
This event has passed.
North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Department for International Trade, would like to invite both existing and new exporters to to learn about trading with our close neighbours across the Irish Sea. Our event is timed to coincide with the DIT International Trade Week.
Ireland is an important trading partner for the UK. Trade and foreign investment is encouraged, and growth is strong.
Ireland is a good place for UK businesses to try exporting for the first time, as business practices, laws, systems of finance and broader culture are similar to the UK. However, a set of competitive and strong product and service USPs are important to succeed in a competitive market environment.
There is a long history of strong trade between the UK and Ireland. Irish consumers and businesses are very familiar with UK goods and services and see them as high quality. UK companies receive positive support from local partners.
We will be joined by colleagues from the British Irish Chamber, DIT Ireland, and representatives of our event sponsor Irish freight Solutions with a guest speaker from the Irish Consulate General in Manchester.
