Ireland’s Minister for Science,Technology and Innovation Conor Lenihan is throwing the spotlight on the abilities of the Irish telecoms sector at the Mobile World Congress 2010 in Barcelona, Spain, this week.
Lenihan spoke of the success of the booming Irish-owned mobile telecoms sector and the event gave him the opportunity to promote Irish enterprise as a source of top-notch products, services and technologies.
The Irish mobile telecoms sector, in addition to being one of Ireland’s major high-tech success stories in international markets, has drawn significant export increases in recent years and companies are working to increase their reach through partnerships with leading operators, distributors and subsidiaries.
Ireland is home to more than 70 mobile and wireless technology companies, many of which have won substantial deals with tier-one global operators. Last year, the Irish-owned telecoms sector achieved international sales of €260 million, representing a doubling of export growth in five years, according to Irishdev.com.
