My Department has been involved with one such supplement during the period in question. That was a ‘Business in Japan’ report which appeared in the Irish Times to coincide with the visit of the Japanese Prime Minister on 19th June. The supplement was prepared in cooperation with Enterprise Ireland, the IDA, Bord Bia and Tourism Ireland and promoted the economic and trade links between Ireland and Japan. The share of the cost met by my Department net of VAT was €5,250.
