Big op­por­tu­ni­ties for busi­nesses as routes to China be­gin to open

Fingal Independent - - NEWS -

THE ad­di­tion of direct flights be­tween Dublin and Hong Kong opens up a whole world of new op­por­tu­ni­ties for Ir­ish busi­ness, ac­cord­ing to Dublin Cham­ber.

Ac­cord­ing to Dublin Cham­ber CEO, Mary Rose Burke: ‘The open­ing of the direct route to Hong Kong is ex­cel­lent news for Ir­ish busi­ness. In a world of in­creas­ing uncertainty, it is vi­tal that com­pa­nies di­ver­sify mar­kets and seek to min­imise risks. As we await clar­ity on how Bri­tain’s de­ci­sion to leave the Euro­pean Union will play out, it is im­por­tant for com­pa­nies to con­sider op­por­tu­ni­ties in new mar­kets.

‘Huge op­por­tu­ni­ties ex­ist in Hong Kong for Ir­ish firms and the coun­try also pro­vides a gate­way into the in­creas­ingly lu­cra­tive Chi­nese mar­ket. There ex­ist very strong syn­er­gies be­tween Ire­land and Hong Kong that would en­able us to share the knowl­edge and skills nec­es­sary to drive two-way trade and in­vest­ment links in the ar­eas of fin­tech, ed­u­ca­tion, tech­nol­ogy, tourism and food and bev­er­ages.’
