Ireland's Ambassadors to meet for three-day conference on economy

All of Ireland's Ambassadors will gather in Dublin later for a three-day conference.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs Charlie Flanagan will be tasking the diplomats with redoubling their efforts to promote Irish businesses internationally.

More than 90 Irish Ambassadors, Consuls General and senior diplomats will join the Taoiseach, Tanaiste and government ministers at Dublin Castle for this conference.

Ireland's economic recovery will be discussed in depth over the three days, with a number of key-note speakers addressing the delegates.

These will include EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, Mary Robinson, and the UN Secretary General's Special Adviser on Post-2015 Development Planning.

Over the course of the conference, Ambassadors will meet directly with executives from more than 40 Irish companies to discuss how our embassies can help them to succeed in international markets.
