As part of the €250 million Government Regional Action Plan for Jobs, Galway Chamber has announced a five year plan which includes a new food hub, and covered food market in Galway city. The plan also included an IT innovation centre, a conference centre for Galway and a general rejuvenation of Galway inner city and Salthill.
President of Galway Frank Greene said of the plan, “It also presents an opportunity for all business organizations to be bold and imaginative in coming up with radical and well-costed solutions.”
Green also said that creating a unique Regional Enterprise Strategy for each region taking into account its own specific issues is vital for the success of the programme,
“It is also fundamental that the Government does everything in its power to communicate and promote the various funds and supports introduced to businesses. We urge the Government to work closely with the local Chambers in each region who are uniquely placed to understand the problems facing business that act as barriers to job creation”.
Minister for Rural Affairs, Ann Phelan, said in reference to Galway Chamber's 2015-2020 Economic Development plan that she "wished to congratulated Galway Chamber for being ahead of the curve" and also congratulated them on their collaboration with the local and regional authorities, Enterprise Ireland, IDA, and LEO.
