Big opportunities for businesses as routes to China begin to open
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.’
