Retail Excellence, will tomorrow (13 January) represent Irish Inustry at a global meeting of retail representative bodies in New York, USA.
The Forum for International Retail Association Executives (FIRAE) is composed of national retail associations that primarily represent members in the grocery, pharmacy and general merchandise retail sectors and is comprised of senior executives of such bodies.
“Through our collaboration and information exchange with other retail trade association executives around the world we can help enhance the success of Irish retail through the development of more informed and effective policies based on emerging trends," Lorraine Higgins, Deputy CEO of Retail Excellence, said.
“Learning more about best practice in other jurisdictions along with discussing the challenges and opportunities that face retailers in 2018 is most helpful as it helps with medium to long term planning for the industry which will ultimately benefit our membership.”
FIRAE meets twice annually where they discuss the various issues impacting the industry.
