It claims that the initiative is on course to create 5,000 jobs over the next five years.
The forum saw the launch of a number of initiatives including the Gathering 2013 and the Global Irish Contacts programme, which links the diaspora to Irish firms wishing to expand overseas.
So far there are 38 confirmed gatherings organised by the diaspora - including the Irish Technology Leadership Group's 'Silicon Valley Comes To Ireland' event.
