Ireland is a small, open, trade-dependent economy. Its openness is reflected both in the international mobility of its labour and capital reflected by strong migration flows and high levels of foreign direct investment. It is strategically located on major air and sea routes between North America and Northern Europe. Over 40% of the population resides within 100 km of Dublin, the Capital City. Ireland is also a member of the Euro single currency.
