Gorey Chamber has formally signed up to Chambers Ireland
GOREY Chamber has formally joined Chambers Ireland, the national business network.
The Gorey organisation is the fourth member of Chambers Ireland in Wexford, alongside Wexford, Enniscorthy, and New Ross. The business grouping has more than 50 members across Ireland.
The news was announced at a Gorey Chamber lunch in the town on Tuesday.
Jim Hughes, Vice President of Gorey Chamber said that membership of Chambers Ireland will see the business community in Gorey and North Wexford in a position to influence national Chambers Ireland policy which feeds in directly to Irish Government submissions through a regular consultation process. It will also allow them to share best business practice ideas with other Chambers.
Ian Talbot, CEO of Chambers Ireland, gave the keynote address at the launch, and also launched a new Business Start Up Incentive Pack, which sees 15 local businesses offer a range of services in a start up situation.
Jim Hughes said that North Wexford is one of the best locations in which to set up in business. 'We fully intend to promote the area as an ideal place to develop innovative projects based on the latest technologies,' he said.
'We intend to seize every opportunity presented to us to develop a sustainable local economy, building on new technologies, tourism, retail, services and indigenous industry. Membership of Chambers Ireland should see us develop a national profile and assist us in achieving our goals.'
