Ireland’s linguistic and cultural ties can make it feel something of a home-from-home when doing business there, it’s very much it’s own nation, and a long-established trading partner with the UK – not only is the emerald isle the UK’s fifth largest export market, the UK accounts for almost a third (30%) of imports into Ireland, that’s more than any other country.

El Salvador is a tiny country that borders Guatemala and Honduras and is the only Central American nation that doesn’t have an Atlantic coastline.

It’s Pacific Ocean beaches and mountainous landscape, however,  make it ideal for extreme sports enthusiasts but not necessarily for business, and so information on on UK trade with El Salvador is relatively limited to say the least – the US is far and away El Salvador’s largest trading partner.
