Ireland Colombia Trade: A Prospering Partnership

  • Ireland Colombia trade grew four times between 2009 and 2015.
  • Bilateral trade between Ireland & Colombia was worth nearly €400 million in 2015.
  • This rise in trade is widely expected to keep on going because Brexit is pushing Irish government to look more at non-traditional markets. Further, Ireland plans to open an embassy in the Colombian Capital of Bogota in 2019.

EXPORT DOMINATED: Irish exports account for 61% of bilateral trade.

A DIVERSE RELATIONSHIP: Important exports include Chemicals and related products, while key imports include Mineral fuels, lubricants and related products (2015).
