Leading firm ByrneWallace will sponsor a new category in this year’s Export Industry Awards.
Now in its 19th year, the Export Industry Awards recognise the remarkable achievements of indigenous companies with awards across 12 categories.
ByrneWallace will sponsor a new category of Private Irish Business of the Year.
Head of corporate law at the firm Neil Keenan said that the firm advised many clients who trade overseas.
“Exports are, of course, fundamental to Ireland’s global success. Given the current international trading climate, and increasing uncertainty caused by Brexit, the trading tensions between the US and China, as well as other factors impacting on international trade, it is important to celebrate the success of Irish businesses who are overcoming these challenges and who are driving growth within this key sector of the Irish economy.”
Simon McKeever of the Irish Exporters Association (IEA) commented: “Ireland’s export industry has been a story of resilience, innovation and success with Irish products and services renowned for their high quality across the globe.”
The competition is currently open for entries. Closing date for entries is Sunday 15 September.
Shortlisted companies will be announced at the end of September, and the awards ceremony will take place on the 8 November in the Convention Centre in Dublin.
