Minister Robert Troy TD meets with Midlands Regional Enterprise Plan Steering Committee to begin the process of developing a series of new Regional Enterprise Plans to 2024
Published: 23rd February 2021
The process commencing today will see new Regional Enterprise Plans developed for each region which will cover the period through to 2024. The Plans are based on a ‘bottom-up’ collaborative approach, involving development agencies, Enterprise Ireland and IDA Ireland, Local Enterprise Offices, Local Authorities, higher and further education bodies and businesses. Each Regional Committee is chaired by a senior figure from industry within the region.
Over the coming weeks, Minister Troy and his departmental colleague Minister Damien English will engage with the other eight Regional Committees around the country with a view to developing a new series of Regional Enterprise Plans which it is hoped will create the conditions for entrepreneurs to start and scale their businesses, encourage new investment and business growth, and lead to increased employment in every region.
Minister for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation, Robert Troy TD said:
"I am delighted to begin this engagement today with the Midlands region. The Midlands Regional Enterprise Plan Steering Committee, chaired by Dr Anne Cusack, MD Critical Healthcare, has overseen a very successful Plan over the past two years. With the challenges facing us, it is timely to reassess and repurpose the regional plans so that we can ensure sustainable economic recovery and continue to build on each region’s strengths and opportunities for the benefit of local businesses and communities."
