    Default Why is Belgium our 2nd biggest export market??

    p. 6

    Thanks

    oh and by the way

    Seasonally adjusted
    exports increased by 8% between June and July while imports decreased by 9% leading to an increase in the Trade surplus of 29% to €4,203m

    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.

    Good question. Some large wholesaler that we ship to one of their ports who then distributes it around the world?

    Exactly. Antwerp, Bruges-Zeebrugge, Ghent and Ostend, for onward distribution to the Benelux & Central Europe.

    Facts and Figures re Irish GDP and exports are more than a little nonsensical given the prevalence of multinationals and transfer pricing!
