Exports on the rise in Kildare

North Kildare Chamber International trade figures released this week by North Kildare Chamber show a sizeable increase in exports by local companies in 2011. The jump of 29% follows a significant rise in exports in 2010.

“Last year was a very strong year for exporters in North Kildare.  We worked with companies of all sizes throughout the year to facilitate exports outside of the European Union.  I am delighted that we will be presenting a strong set of figures from North Kildare Chamber to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade” said Chamber CEO Allan Shine.

North Kildare Chamber processes trade documentation for companies throughout County Kildare seeking to export outside of the EU.  In the past year they say that the range of products being exported has increased.   Since May of 2011 the Chamber has enabled exporting companies to certify trade documentation online through an Irish designed software system.

The Chamber also carried out free training for companies in the area on the new system;  "The new online system has been a success because of its ability to streamline the documentation process.  The main advantage with this system is the ease of use and the fact that certificates of origin can be processed straightaway,” Shine concluded.
