Roundtable: Consultations on policies needed to enhance trade facilitation between Ireland and Russia

February 6, 2013

Date: Wednesday, 20th February 2013
Time: 2pm-3.30pm (Council meeting to be held afterwards from 3.30pm-5pm)
Venue: Boardroom, Irish Exporters Association, 28 Merrion Square, Dublin 2

Dear IRBA Members, Friends & Business Associates,

To consolidate and expand the gains in our bilateral trade with Russia, Ireland needs to dramatically increase the range of goods and services marketed inside the Russian Federation, as well as expand the geographic reach of the current trade beyond the Central Regions, including Moscow and St. Petersburg, to regions well beyond the traditional zones of our exporters engagement in Russia.

To further deepen bilateral business links, Ireland also needs to offer Russia a significant and suitable trade and investment location platform via Ireland and into the broader EU.

Both objectives require establishing better targeted and often innovative systems of institutional and policy supports for Ireland-Russia bilateral trade here on the ground, as well as continuing building trade and investment facilitation links in Moscow and the rest of Russia.

The IRBA, with its membership well established in Irish bilateral trade relations with Russia is developing a strategy document for the Irish policymakers’ attention, to communicate both the need and the specific proposals for policy and institutional improvements that can help further increase our exports to Russia and develop investment inflows from Russia into Ireland.

With this in mind, we are starting a consultative process with our members on the topic of policies and measures needed to enhance trade and investment facilitation between Ireland and Russia. To launch this process we are holding a roundtable.

If you are interested in attending this roundtable meeting, please RSVP by email to jc@irba.ie or call +353 1 6424178 before COB on Friday, 15th February 2013.

Please note: This is a members only event. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Note: If you are unable to attend the roundtable but would like to contribute to the discussion, we also welcome written submissions and input.

Kind regards,

Constantin Gurdgiev

Ireland Russia Business Association
