The Business Summit on Ireland-U.S. Economic Relations in New York City in March will kick off with an opening night dinner on Wednesday, March 15 with guest speaker Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), one of the highest-ranking economic policy officials in the new Trump administration.

The event, will continue with a session on the morning of Thursday, March 16 featuring many other top-ranked speakers, and will conclude with the Ireland-U.S. Council’s regularly-scheduled St. Patrick’s lunch. The event will be held at the Metropolitan Club in New York City.

The event is being co-sponsored with the Ireland-U.S. Council by IBEC, Ireland’s leading business representative organization.
