In recent years, Enterprise Ireland has witnessed an increase of nearly 50% in the number of Irish companies with a direct presence in the Italian market. Irish companies focusing on innovation and providing niche products are likely to find gaps in the market that might not have been apparent before. A number of key sectors have been identified as offering the greatest export opportunities. These include digital technologies, life sciences, engineering, and agritech.
