An official representative from the Embassy of Chile in Ireland visited Cork on the occasion of the recent opening of the Honorary Consulate of Chile. The Consulate is the first Chilean Consulate in Ireland. The work agenda included a series of meetings with representatives of the public and private sectors, as well as with the Chilean community, to strengthen the consular, commercial, scientific and cultural presence of our country in one of the largest cities in Ireland.
The opening of an honorary consulate in Cork is undoubtedly a milestone to highlight the bilateral relations between Chile and Ireland and underlines the enormous potential policies of commercial, academic and other expansion in a city that represents the second industrial lung of Ireland in which the main pharmaceutical companies of the planet are concentrated and operate prestigious ocean and environmental research institute, just to mention some interesting markets.
The current Honorary Consul David Cronin also has knowledge and a solid financial position, an unblemished reputation and excellent connections in the region, so his appointment foresees a strengthening of the presence of Chile and openness to new areas of cooperation.
