Taoiseach Leo Varadkar meets with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is in Paris today for his first bilateral meeting with the President of France, Emmanuel Macron.

Matters discussed include the Future of Europe Agenda, securing a good deal for Ireland and Europe from Brexit, and building on discussions at last week’s European Council Summit. The two leaders also discussed the close bilateral relations between Ireland and France, and opportunities to strengthen them further, for example through a planned Celtic Interconnector energy link.

The Taoiseach also attended a business event organised by the Irish Embassy in partnership with Enterprise Ireland, IDA Ireland, Tourism Ireland and Bord Bia to promote stronger trade, investment and tourism links between Ireland and France.
