Global Irish Economic Forum to bring diaspora together

Minister for Foreign Affairs Micheal Martin says the government will start work on implementing the proposals from the global Irish forum

Enterprise Ireland, with the assistance of our Embassies, currently supports over 60 Irish business networks worldwide, comprising some 30,000 members.

I am deeply heartened by the reservoir of goodwill that exists among our global community, particularly here in the United States.

The presence of these leading figures in Ireland will be a vibrant demonstration of the enduring spirit of the global Irish diaspora; of our strong need to remain connected to each other; and of a remarkable willingness of those abroad to remain engaged with this country.
