Asia business forum welcomes Irish official

Ireland’s Deputy Prime Minister Eamon Gilmore will visit Seoul on Friday to deliver the keynote speech at the 5th Annual Asia Pacific Ireland Business Forum in addition to attending other events.

The forum, which takes place on Friday at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in central Seoul, focuses on building connections between business groups based in the Asia-Pacific and Gulf regions.

As chair of Ireland’s Export Trade Council, the deputy prime minister is expected to discuss Ireland’s relationship with Korea as well as Ireland’s economic recovery and the situation in the euro zone in his speech. Gilmore is also slated to meet with Irish and Korean businessmen.

Later that day, he will participate in the Seoul Finance Forum hosted by Kim Ki-hwan and the 16th annual Asian Gaelic Games in Suwon. The annual championship tournament will bring about 700 players from countries across Asia for Irish traditional games such as Gaelic football, hurling and camogie.
