Initiatives to bolster UK-Ireland trade
In 2021, UK exports to the Republic of Ireland were worth £41.6bn, making it the UK’s fourth largest export market, according to House of Commons research.
Wales represented almost a tenth (8.2%) of this trade, but the proportion of UK goods entering Ireland through Welsh ports is thought to be much higher. Welsh ports such as Holyhead and Fishguard are among the main exit points for goods
leaving Britain for Ireland and therefore the EU.
By watching our Initiatives to bolster UK-Ireland trade webinar recording, you will get answers from our international trade experts to important questions about the challenges faced by traders. You will
also gain insight into the customs and digital solutions currently being developed by the UK government to facilitate the smooth flow of goods through Welsh ports into Ireland.
