The International Trade Skillnet today said that export-led growth is the only sustainable route to secure long-term prosperity for Ireland’s economy.
The comments were made at the launch of 'Exporting Internationally: A Smarter Business Guide to Certificates of Origin' which was funded through the Training Networks Programme, from the National Training Fund through the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment.
Mary Meehan, International Trade Skillnet Network Manager said: "The success of exporters is ever more essential for the Irish economy to grow and prosper in the current economic climate.
"As a small open economy, our growth and well-being are heavily dependent on our trade performance. To date, Ireland has shown that we are well placed to ‘punch above our weight’ in international markets."
