Trade mission from Rhode Island USA set for September as Dublin economy grows
A trade mission from the US state of Rhode Island will spend a week in Ireland in September, as the Dublin economy thrives with a post Brexit boost driving increased trade interest from US firms.
Among the delegates on the mission are representatives from technology and medical device companies, law firms, logistics and warehousing providers, manufacturing firms and advertising agencies.
Two of the 25 delegates are US intellectual property and trademark specialists Donald Frugé and Alan Feeney of Providence-based Feeney Law Group.
Donald Frugé commented: “There have always been good links between the old country and New England, but these are seeing a new relevance as Ireland stands to be the last significant English speaking part of the EU, and an increasingly attractive base for US firms wanting to trade with Europe.”
