IDA Ireland, Irish Government’s foreign investment agency has appointed Tanaz Buhariwalla as the Director of their India office.
Her role involves promoting Ireland as an operational base for Indian companies expanding their presence in European markets, IDA Ireland said in a statement. The country is targeting companies in the area of technology, business services, life sciences, medical technologies and high-end manufacturing, it added.
IDA Ireland CEO Martin Shanahan said: “India is a strategic market for IDA Ireland and is thus being accorded high priority within the organisation.
Close to 40 Indian companies have already set up base in Ireland.
“Indian companies are increasingly assessing Ireland as an attractive investment destination and also as a gateway to access the European markets,” Buhariwalla said.
