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.
Flights to Ireland are both cheap and frequent, and so trading there is something of a no-brainer for British businesses. Even so, you could still save a lot of time and money by doing business via conference call on you landline or mobile, rather than in person.
