Global Ireland Strategies

Learn more about the Department of Foreign Affairs' Global Ireland Strategies

The Global Ireland strategy was launched by Government in 2018 with the aim of doubling Ireland’s footprint and impact by 2025.

Its ambition is to grow Ireland’s international impact and influence, to be present and active in new cities and countries in the world, to build new partnerships, new business links, new alliances, and new friendships.

The strategic ambition is to make Ireland’s voice count for more on the international stage, to build our national reputation, to exert more influence, and to be a strong participant in global enterprise, trade, culture, diplomacy, peacebuilding, and development.
