Representation in Ireland


Commissioner Arias Cañete presenting the Strategy

Today the European Commission adopted a strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy by 2050 – A Clean Planet for all.

The strategy shows how Europe can lead the way to climate neutrality by investing into realistic technological solutions, empowering citizens, and aligning action in key areas such as industrial policy, finance, or research – while ensuring social fairness for a just transition.

Two new studies published today by the European Commission highlight the increasing importance of EU exports for job opportunities in Europe and beyond.

EU exports to the world are more important than ever, supporting 36 million jobs across Europe, two thirds more than in 2000. 14 million of these jobs are held by women. In addition, EU exports to the world generate €2.3 trillion of value added in the EU.

Exports from Ireland to countries outside the EU support 648,000 jobs in Ireland. Irish companies’ exports outside the EU were worth €128 billion in 2017.


The European Commission Representation and the European Parliament Liaison Office in Ireland will host a stand at the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition 2019, which takes place from 10 to 12 January at the RDS, Dublin 4.
