Increasing our international presence

Growing exports remains a priority for us in supporting the delivery of a stronger Northern Ireland economy.

Part of Minister Hamilton’s announcement in October 2016 of a new International Trade Plan, included a commitment that we would increase our overseas network in up to 10 new locations around the world.

To date we have announced eight of these new locations:

In each location we will be appointing a Regional Manager who will work proactively with, and provide advice to, Northern Ireland companies to help them grow exports in that market.

As well as building a strong network of stakeholders and influencers to support trade development, the Regional Managers will also help identify potential inward investors.

The rest of our new locations will be announced throughout the year.
