In 2020, Ireland will open three new Embassies in Kyiv, Manila and Rabat. These openings reflect the expansion of Ireland's Diplomatic Network as part of 'Global Ireland – Ireland’s Global Footprint to 2025'.
These openings will contribute to the expansion and deepening of Ireland's international presence across priority regions, provide opportunities to grow our trade and inward investment, strengthen our political relationships with our partners, promote our values, and support Irish citizens and our diaspora abroad.
Planning is currently underway to facilitate the opening of the three Embassies in the second half of the year, subject to the approval of the relevant national authorities.
