Trade Policy and Regulations in Ireland

Overview by Globlatrade.net:

Foreign Trade in Figures

Ireland is a very open economy and therefore very dependent on international situations. During the period 2007-2009, trade represented 156.5% of the GDP. 

After the international economic crisis, the structural trade surplus strongly increased due to the fall of imports combined recently with some resistance in exports. 

The main imports are machinery and equipment, oil and petroleum products, textiles and clothing. The main exports are computers, chemical and pharmaceutical products, live animals and animal products.

Ireland's main trade partners are the European Union and the United States.
