Over the past decade, the Asia Pacific region has contributed two thirds of global growth and is set to overtake the combined economic output of Europe and North America in the early 2020’s. The region is home to more than half the world’s population and will account for more than 60% of the global middle class in the coming years. Already, more than 600 Irish companies do business in this fast-growing region with exports more than doubling over the last four years.

In June 2018, Cathay Pacific will commence the first direct flight from Dublin to Hong Kong.

In view of Asia Pacific’s strong growth potential for Ireland and to mark the announcement of the new direct airlink to these business opportunities, Enterprise Ireland and Cathay Pacific invite you to join us at the ‘‘Routes to Growth - Asia Pacific” - Business Opportunities Conference on Wednesday 25th April at the Aviva Stadium, Dublin.
