Competitiveness Catalyst for Cork

29th May 2015
Cork Chamber Chief Executive Conor Healy today strongly welcomed the decision by An Bord Pleanala (ABP) to grant the Port of Cork’s planning application for the redevelopment of existing Port facilities at Ringaskiddy, Co. Cork.
Mr. Healy stated that “Cork Chamber is delighted with today’s positive news which will yield significant economic dividends for Cork, Munster and the national economy as a whole. The Port of Cork is a key catalytic enabler for regional development, economic growth and job creation and this project will underpin our competitiveness for years to come”.
“Government now needs to build on the possibilities which today’s announcement can bring and provide the funding for the N28, Cork to Ringaskiddy road and the upgrade of the Dunkettle Interchange which are the key to unlocking a myriad of economic prospects. These include maximizing the potential of our marine economy through the work in the Irish Marine Energy Research Cluster (IMERC); and the vision to see the potential development of the City’s docklands. Government now needs to turn the key and provide the funding to realise the significant economic potential of our region.”
Cork Chamber is the leading business organisation in Cork supporting and representing the interests of close to 1,100 businesses employing 100,000 people in the region. Cork Chamber has a mandate to develop and promote policy recommendations that create an enabling business environment and support the region’s economic development.
