Opening new EU markets to Irish businesses is the focus of a major conference at Dublin’s Convention Centre today.
The Eurozone summit aims to highlight the potential for growth in Irish trade with the continent, which last year was worth 4.6 billion euro.
Enterprise Ireland, who are hosting the event, hope to increase that figure dramatically by 2020.
Their Regional Director for the Eurozone, Anne Lanigan, says businesses need to think seriously about the untapped opportunities across the Celtic Sea:
Victoria Falls in Africa, York’s medieval City Walls and the Nation Towers in Abu Dhabi are just some of the new global attractions that will turn green this St Patrick’s Day.
It’s part of Tourism Ireland’s Global Greenings project, which is in its 10th year.
Almost 400 sites in total will turn green come March 17th.
Chief Executive of Tourism Ireland, Niall Gibbons, says St. Patrick’s Day puts Ireland on the global map.
