The Councils have been working closely with the IACC to promote the North West region and are delighted that Muff Liquor and Baronscourt Brewing can avail of the unique opportunity to further develop their exports into the US market.
Head of Enterprise in Donegal, Michael Tunney said “We have an amazing cohort of businesses in Donegal and we are working hard now with our businesses to find out what really drives the people who are exporting so we can help others achieve that too. This trip is just one part of that strategy and we are confident that the links we have been forging over the past few years in places like Philadelphia, Boston and New York through the Diaspora project will bear fruit for businesses here.”
The delegation departed to Philadelphia on Wednesday 15th May.
Further trade missions are scheduled to take place to both Boston and Philadelphia in November when both Councils will be supporting a range of local companies to assess their readiness to export and gear up to target and explore new business opportunities in export markets.
