This is how the Celtic Tiger discovered the Far-East


One of the things that some people notice coming back to Dublin after a period of absence is the steady increase of ‘made in Asia’ businesses, Chinese fast food in northern neighborhoods, Pakistani shops in central streets near the river Liffey, fine Nepalese restaurants in some southern area of the city, but many other foreign activities are increasing as well.

Ireland is a small country, but it is also a major exporter, that enjoys strong links with distant markets, overall those where the Irish diaspora is rooted, from the US to Canada (and of course Australia). Not only ‘giants’ like India, but also smaller countries such as Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam (that have already shared with Ireland the nickname “Tiger” for their productive dynamism) are literally multiplying their meat and fish imports: the size of a middle class that is emerging ensures significant results for those that are able to make steps forward in certain niches of these markets.

If the protagonists of finance have arrived there long time ago, now also small and medium-sized businesses are looking at the far-east, thanks to the support that the Republic of Ireland provides businesses through its public agencies (and thanks to new technologies): the Asian industrial revolution took place already and now it is the time for consumers on the web, where small Irish businesses are earning trust in food and textiles market segments.
