In publishing its results for 2022, Enterprise Ireland reported the highest ever year-on-year level of growth in exports (19%), in its 25 years of assisting Irish companies enter and grow in international markets. This result was achieved despite high energy costs, inflation and supply chain disruption impacting the trading environment.

We look forward to hearing how this has been achieved and how Enterprise Ireland is working with companies to help them diversity their export markets and transform their business models to address areas such as sustainability, financing and skills.
