Wexford Business Network to be launched in Dublin
THE new Wexford Business Network is to be officially launched in Dublin at the end of the month.
The Network, supported by the newly-formed economic development unit at the county council and the local enterprise office, will be a platform for the promotion and development of enterprise in the county. Officials said Dublin had been chosen for the May 28 launch to involve more Dublin-based businesses with Wexford interests.
In a document flagging the event to people with strong Wexford connections, County Manager Adrian Doyle said the Network is targeted to support both new and existing businesses in the county and also those based outside the county which are doing business with Wexford-based enterprise.
'This event will be a perfect opportunity to meet with the people that will be working in the new units and to network with other people interested in promoting or facilitating business in County Wexford,' said Mr. Doyle.
Speakers will include Peter Gavican, the project manager for the €310 million CCGT Electricity and Generating Statio at Great Ireland, who will talk about investing in Wexford; Ann O'Brien, managing director of Kent Stainless, who will talk about Wexford as a strategic business location; Minister Brendan Howlin and Minister of State Paul Kehoe, who will talk about government economic policy and public infrastructure and investment in the county and will officialy launch the Network.
The welcoming address will be delivered by county council chair Cllr. Kathleen Codd- Nolan, while Mr. Doyle will MC the event and outline the objectives of the Wexford Business Network.
The event, which is by invitation only, will take place at the Stillorgan Park Hotel.
