The Irish Exporters Association (IEA) is working for you and your business during this challenging time. With much uncertainty, we endeavour to bring clarity. This page is continually updated to ensure that you have up to date official guidance and information.

In addition, our weekly members newsletter includes key information directly from the Government and the EU. As a member of the Government’s COVID-19 National Stakeholder group and a number of stakeholder groups, we will ensure that your business concerns and interests are communicated at the highest levels. Our working hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and our team is available for any queries you have by email or phone call.

We are conscious of the impact that COVID-19 is having on your business. As a key Government stakeholder, we are here to represent your interests by raising your concerns at the highest levels of Government through our direct channels with key policymakers. The Irish Exporters Association is open and here to assist our members.
