Irish businesses encouraged to set up in Australia

17 March 2006


At the Down Under Expo in Dublin this week, Irish businesses were encouraged to consider Australia as an ideal commercial location.
More than 50 specialist exhibitors from Australia attended the two-day event.

Western Australia currently has a skills shortage of more than 14,000, despite the fact that the region is booming due to the rapid growth of its export market to China.

A spokesman said there are opportunities on offer for Irish graduates and entrepreneurs.
