Welcome for government's regional jobs plan
The government has launched an action plan to create new job opportunites for counties Carlow, Kilkenny, Wexford, Waterford and Tipperary.
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton claimed the Action Plan for Jobs plan will help create 25,000 jobs in the southeast over the next five years, among them 200 in Clonmel just announced by Wexford-based Eishtec.
The plan is part of a government drive to launch regional jobs initiatives for each part of the country.
'The creation of unique regional growth strategies is fundamental to supporting regional development and today's publication is therefore very welcome,' said Madeleine Quirke, chief executive of Wexford Chamber. 'Today's launch of a targeted job creation strategy for the South East will act to further accelerate job recovery and economic growth,' she said.
