Business opportunity in US for Donegal businesses 27.04.17

BUSINESSES across the North West including Inishowen are being offered the opportunity to become part of a cross-border trade delegation trip to Boston in November.
Expressions of interest are now being sought for the 2017 Trade and Investment Mission to Boston for local companies with aspirations to break into the US. The trip is being jointly organised by Derry City and Strabane District Council and Donegal County Council.
Twelve companies in total will be included in the delegation sourced from both the Derry and Strabane and Donegal County Council areas. They will be accompanied by the mayors and chief executives of both councils and key partners.
Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District, Alderman Hilary McClintock and Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Terence Slowey pictured with CEOs of both councils, respectively, John Kelpie and Seamus Neely, as they launch the 2017 Trade and Investment Mission to Boston.
Cathaoirleach of Donegal County Council, Cllr Terence Slowey said: “The trade mission offers some unique opportunities for local businesses to engage with key economic and government decision makers, as well as market professionals.
“It’s a great chance to gain some valuable market insight and establish lasting connections through business to business meetings with potential partners, agents and distributors. Those personal connections can prove invaluable when trying to stand out in an increasingly competitive business arena.”
O’Neills Irish International Sports Company Limited joined the same trade mission last year and recommended it for any firm with "serious aspirations" about doing business in the Boston and Massachusetts areas".
