Donegal and Derry & Strabane are already organising workshops for the Trade Mission to Boston Massachusetts in November.
Boston-based economic development consulting firm Benchmark Strategies spent the last week in the North West region of Ireland meeting businesses who are participating in this year’s North West Trade Mission to Boston Massachusetts in November.
The mission is being jointly led by two Core ERNACT Regions, Donegal County Council and Derry City and Strabane District Council, and offers unique opportunities for local businesses to engage with key economic and government decision makers, as well as market professionals. 14 companies will be included in the delegation sourced from both the Donegal and Derry and Strabane regions. Furthermore, they will be accompanied by the Mayors and Chief Executives of both Councils and key partners.
According to Donegal County Council, this will be the second Trade and Investment Mission led by the councils to the Massachusetts region and will continue to develop existing relationships with key economic, business, political and civic connections in the Boston Massachusetts area which have been progressing since 2008.
