Written by: Editor

Ireland and China established a new investment fund for technology companies operating in these countries. The investment fund, with a total value of EUR 150 million, was set up by the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund (ISIF) and CIC Capital Corporation. The main purpose of the fund is to assist Irish companies to expand their activities on the Chinese market; through this fund, companies in China will use Ireland as their base market to operate on the European market. This fund represents a second project in this sense, after the launch of a similar vehicle in 2014, with a value of $ 100 million. Our team of consultants in company formation in Ireland can advise investors on how to access the fund established by the two states.
