Six Gaeltacht companies, including one from Donegal, and representatives of Údarás na Gaeltachta, are part of a trade mission to Philadelphia this month.
The delegation has been invited by the Irish-American Business Chamber Network (IABCN) to develop export markets, and the companies will promote their businesses at an event organised by Údarás, IABCN and the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The companies are Oileán Glas Teo., Donegal; and companies from Cork, Mayo and Galway.
“This trade mission is an excellent opportunity to promote the Gaeltacht as a location for enterprise to the business community in Philadelphia,” said Steve Ó Cúláin, Údarás na Gaeltachta Chief Executive. “It also presents an excellent opportunity to Gaeltacht companies to establish new contacts in America aimed at expanding their export markets.”
