€400m FDI from China to Ireland launches next month

Ireland is set to host its first Sino-European Entrepreneurs Summit this June, in line with the Phase 1 launch of an investment project of €400 million to Ireland’s midlands region. 

Over one hundred high level Chinese business leaders, CEO’s and investors will be arriving in to Ireland to discuss partnerships, trade deals and opportunities between Ireland and China. Industries covered will include finance, healthcare, agriculture, science & technology, cultural & creative, education and more.

The event will be co-chaired by Mr Long Yongtu, China’s Former Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation and the SEES Committee who are overseeing the investment project.

Guest speakers will include the incoming Chinese Ambassador, His Excellency He Xiang Dong, Mr Wanchun Zheng, President of China Minsheng Banking Corp and many other high level executives from China and Ireland.

The Sino-European Entrepreneurs Summit is an annual gathering of business and political leaders from China and Europe. The purpose of the SEES programme is to help Chinese business leaders and their European counterparts build personal relationships and share industry insights with one another while working towards establishing investment, trade and technology partnerships. Celebrating its 10th successful year, this is Ireland’s first time to host the event.

The 3-day event is open to business leaders and government officials across Ireland who are interested in building long-term working relationships with Chinese investors and CEO’s and discuss the upcoming opportunities in Phase 1 of the €400 million investment project in the midlands. Irish food and beverage samples and technology demonstrations will also be exhibited at the event.

From Thursday 13 June to Saturday 15 June, delegates are invited to a pre-summit dinner in Dublin followed by the full-day summit with evening reception and dinner in Killashee House, Co. Kildare.
