Anne Anderson has been Ireland’s ambassador to the United States since August 2013. Her main focus is on strengthening economic ties between the two countries.

The future looks bleak for multi-national free trade agreements, like NAFTA and the TPP, following this presidential election.

For this week's Bauer Business Focus, Florian Martin spoke with the Irish ambassador to the United States, Anne Anderson.
