The Ireland China Business Association was established in November 2000 by a number of forward looking individuals and companies with the support of the then Chinese Ambassador to Ireland, Madame Zhang Xiaokang. Chris Horn of Iona Technologies was the founding Chairman and with little or no trade between the two countries they wished to explore the opportunities and start making contacts.
The primary aims were:
-To promote greater economic ties between Ireland and China
-To increase trade and commerce between Ireland and China
-To increase cultural and educational links between Ireland and China
-To promote greater knowledge of both countries
-To further such links in all ways open to the Association
