Trade and Investment Report 2022

This second trade and investment report shows the continuing growth in international trade and the role played by the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment in supporting trade and investment in and out of Ireland.

Ireland’s economy is heavily dependent on international trade and this openness is a national strength that helps create high value employment opportunities throughout Ireland. As a small open economy, the more we diversify our trade relationships, the stronger our supply chains become and the more robust our ability to withstand global challenges will be.

Exceeding €1 trillion in total trade for the first time in 2022 and achieving a trade surplus of €67 billion highlights the continuing strength and value of the Irish enterprise sector.

The Trade and Investment Strategy Value for Ireland, Values for the World, and the White Paper on Enterprise 2022-2030 sets out priorities for Irish enterprise policy.
