The software technology, engineering and life sciences sectors are the fastest growing sectors for exports by native Irish companies, growing at 15 to 20 per cent per annum. This growth provides an opportunity to expand the technology sectors role in building a robust, sustainable and high-value added driver for Ireland’s economy. A key aspect in this potential growth is how effective these industries represent themselves online.
