"The Farmleigh Fellowship aims to develop 1000 Irish based professionals with experience of doing international business across Asia over the next five years and gradually build a critical mass of professionals who will spearhead a greater business, political and cultural engagement between Ireland and this region."
The Fellowship was founded in 2009 following the Global Irish Economic Forum. It was identified that Ireland has vast opportunities to grow its business interests in Asia but lacks sufficient numbers of qualified professionals on the ground. On returning to Singapore, discussions were held on how best this vacuum could be filled to both enhance and enable the growth of Ireland’s business interests across Asia. The result was the Farmleigh MBS which we believe can help bridge this gap in a practical and meaningful way and help make the Asian marketplace of the future as real and as relevant to people’s lives in Ireland, as America and Europe are today.
The Farmleigh Fellowship comprises of a Board of Directors with one chairperson and three board members and a Project Manager who reports to the Board of Directors.
The Farmleigh Fellowship is a not for profit charity organisation based in Singapore and is co-funded by a partnership between the Irish Government and Industry.
