Austrian Bankers visit Dublin

19 June 2017

A Tyrolean delegation checks out the Irish environment for international financial services

Bankers from Tyrol were interested in finding out what makes Ireland so attractive for banks and international financial services companies to locate their operations here.

Advantage Austria Dublin together with the banking and insurance section of the Tyrolean Chamber of Commerce organized the appropriate programme which included:

  • A visit to the Central Bank of Ireland with presentations by financial experts and an introduction to the Irish economy by Commercial Counsellor Wilhelm Nest
  • A meeting with the International Financial Services Director of the Department of Finance
  • An analysis of the risks (and possible opportunities) of Brexit facing Irish businesses by Edgar Morgenroth (Associate Research Professor) of the ESRI.

Outside the official programme, this trip to Ireland offered highlights like the World Cup Qualifier match Ireland v Austria on 11 June, the 50 Year celebrations at the Advantage Austria office on 12 June and the obligatory visit of the Guinness Store House.
