With an office in Brussels and a team in Dublin dedicated to trade and international affairs, Ibec engages with the EU Institutions, the Irish Government, other Member States and the wider European policy community to protect and promote the interests of Irish business and to champion Ireland's business model and economic priorities at EU and international level.  

We are an active member in BusinessEurope, Europe’s leading voice in business representation as well as the European Services Forum which advocates that trade in services is adequately featured in the EU’s free trade agreements. We enjoy excellent bilateral relationships with business groups across Europe as well as in the USA such as the US Chamber of Commerce, National Association of Manufacturers and more.

About the Team

Our Brussels's team is led by Pat Ivory and provides strategic advice, briefings, host regular events and organise tailored delegation visits, helping our members to navigate the complexity of EU decision-making and build relationships in Brussels. Our work also supports the EU activities of our colleagues across Ibec's policy units, sectoral trade associations and regional offices in Ireland.
