Built to Last: Launch at a Glance

In celebrating 50 years of supporting US-Ireland commercial ties the American Chamber celebrates the success of every one of our member companies and the enduring trade and investment relationship between Ireland and the USA.

With that in mind, the Chamber commissioned an authoritative study on the impact and value of the Irish US economic relationship in terms of both Trade and Investment. Built to Last: The Irish US Economic Relationship, will contribute to rebuilding Ireland's reputation as one of the best locations in the world from which to do business. The analysis reflects the deep, positive and strategic significance of the US-Ireland relationship in a compelling manner.
