(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The mission, which was headed by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny T.D. and Richard Bruton, T.D., Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, attracted a huge number of Irish companies keen to strengthen commercial ties with the region



The IBN social event attracted over 550 guests to the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel where they enjoyed an Irish themed evening which included a welcome address from well-known Galway man Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman of Dubai Duty Free. He outlined the phenomenal growth of Dubai and Dubai Duty Free over the past 30 years, which has seen the duty free operation grow from a 20 million start-up in 1983 to a 1.8 billion business, making it the largest single airport retailer in the world



Ireland's ambassador to the UAE, Patrick Hennessey, introduced the Taoiseach, who provided the audience with an update on the Irish economy. The Taoiseach praised the advanced level and major achievements of the UAE and stressed that the visit by the delegation heralded a strong start to establishing strategic economics links with the UAE



In welcoming the Taoiseach and the delegation, IBN's Chairman Bernard Creed said: "This visit by An Taoiseach and minister Bruton, coming hot on the heels of the visit by Minister Coveney last October, underlines the importance of the GCC to the Irish economy. We are delighted to have had such a high-level mission in the UAE and appreciate the commitment shown by An Taoiseach and minister Bruton in taking the time to meet the business and wider Irish community living here in the UAE.



The evening concluded with the Taoiseach unveiling the IBN's Job Portal which is aimed at encouraging UAE employers to tap into the growing Irish talent pool in the region. The job portal is free for both employers and Irish job applicants who can apply for positions and post their CV's online



Taoiseach, Enda Kenny T.D. also paid a visit to The Irish Village restaurant in Garhoud to officially inaugurate the extension of the popular venue. The Taoiseach, who was accompanied by Irish Ambassador to the UAE, Patrick Hennessey, was greeted by Colm McLoughlin and George Horan. The Irish Village is part of Dubai Duty Free's Leisure portfolio and is one of the most popular Irish restaurants in Dubai
