This week three Government ministers begin a two-day trade and investment mission to Dublin, Limerick and Sligo. They are the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, the Minister of State for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection, and the Minister of State at the Department of Finance and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform with special responsibility for Public Procurement, Open Government and eGovernment. This forms part of a Global Sourcing initiative, which aims to create business opportunities for Irish-owned companies with multinationals (MNCs) based in Ireland. More than 455 pre-arranged one-to-one meetings are scheduled to take place between 194 Enterprise Ireland clients and 111 IDA Ireland companies over the course of the two days. “The mission provides MNCs with direct access to potential suppliers, as well as raising awareness of the innovative capabilities of Irish SMEs across a range of sectors,” writes siliconerepublic where you can read the full report.
