Message from our patron

 

I am
delighted to have this opportunity to convey warm appreciation to the members
of the Norwegian Irish Business Association for their ongoing work in promoting
friendship and business relations between Norway and Ireland. Our two countries share a wide range of views
and interests and cooperate closely on a variety of international issues. NIBA plays a valuable role in helping to
develop the bilateral links between Norway and Ireland and in highlighting the
mutual advantage for both countries from more intensive economic and business
links. I am very pleased to follow in
the footsteps of my predecessors and to continue the close cooperation which they had with NIBA in working to
develop closer business links between 
our two countries.

Angela O’Farrell

Introduction
Ireland offers investors a stable, profitable, English-speaking base to service the European market and beyond. It has a dynamic and youthful population that is both productive and flexible. Ireland has a competitive cost environment. More than 1,200 overseas companies have made Ireland their location of choice.

 

Economy
Ireland has prospered by offering investors a stable, profitable, English-speaking base to serve the European market and beyond. As a result, the ratio of trade to GDP rose by more than 50 percentage points in the 1990s.

 

Taxation
Ireland offers one of the most beneficial corporate tax environments in the world. Since 2003 Ireland's standard corporate tax rate is 12,5%, in comparative terms a very low rate.
 
Logistics
Ireland is a trading nation, exporting 90% of GNP. A highly efficient distribution network brings most of Europe within 24-48 hours by truck. An increasing number of companies are gaining additional advantage by centralising their pan-European distribution logistics in Ireland.


People/skilled staff
Ireland has one of the youngest populations in Europe and its highly skilled workforce is tailored to meet the demands of the economy. A ready supply of highly skilled labour is one of the factors most often cited as being behind Ireland's rapid economic development.
