Ireland's Services Imports from Israel in 2010, the last year in respect of which country-specific data is available, totalled €96m. Of this total, Other trade related services accounted for €75m, Financial Services for €1m and the remainder comprises minor sums in respect of Communications, Insurance, Computer Services, Legal Accounting and other professional services, Advertising and market research and Research and development. These latter categories cannot be itemised individually as the data has been suppressed by the CSO for confidentiality reasons, i.e. because the individual companies concerned could be identified, given the small number of transactions involved.
