The status of the Irish export market, first quarter 2012, May 2012paddy

The Irish export markets grew at a rate of 3.6% in the first quarter of the year, but the increase fell just short on the levels required to create new jobs. Service exports were the strongest performer by increasing by 8.1%, while merchandise exports only rose by 0.1%.

Irish exports to the UK increased by 19% in the quarter but exports to China fell by 5%, hopefully this will change with the export government agreements between Ireland and China. The highest export growth seen was 32% in both the Russian and Brazilian markets. (Statistics by The Irishtimes May 2012)
