Minister Will "Unashamedly" Promote Ireland

Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore has said that ministers travelling around the globe for St Patrick’s Day celebrations will “unashamedly” sell the message that Ireland is recovering and is one of the best destinations in the world for inward investment and tourism.

The Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade yesterday said St Patrick’s Day was a unique opportunity for Ireland to promote itself that was available to almost no other country in the world.

“Apart from Bastille Day and the Fourth of July, there is no other national day that commands such attention. All Ministers will be consciously using that focus on Ireland to promote the country and to encourage investment and trade,” said Gilmore.


“The basic message is that now is the time to invest in Ireland’s recovery. We will be looking to getting investment in . . . increasing tourism and cultural links.”

Speaking on the eve of his own trip to Canada the minister has a busy itinerary lined up for the coming day, which will see him meeting both Irish emigrants at St Patrick’s Day celebrations and the countries finance minister Jim Flaherty.

Speaking to the Irish Times he said he would be bring two messages with him, that the new wave of emigrants and their families would not be forgotten and that the Government’s focus on jobs would work towards offering them a way back home.
