What is The Economic Condition of Ireland?
Ireland’s main economic resource is its large fertile pastures, particularly the midland and southern regions.In 2012 Ireland exported approximately €9 billion worth of agri-food and drink (about 8.4% of Ireland’s exports), mainly as cattle, beef, and dairy products.
The country is one of the largest exporters of pharmaceuticals, medical devices and software-related goods and services in the world. Ireland’s agri-food exports are expected to grow and are led by a number of large Irish companies including Kerry Group, Glanbia, and Greencore. Exports play an important role in Ireland’s economic growth.
