Languages Skills essential for success

In light of Brexit, foreign language skills will become even more important. There is a greater need for non-UK market diversification by Irish-based enterprises. This has been highlighted by the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs, in its report Addressing the Skills Needs Arising from the Potential Trade Implications of Brexit (June 2018). This report emphasises the importance of implementing the Languages Connect Strategy in full, in order to enhance the resilience, agility and responsiveness of enterprises in their international trading activity.
