Over the past year, as part of the Joining the Dots Programme - West of Ireland, NUI Galway has been working with the British Embassy to explore business clusters in Galway/Mayo and counterparts in the UK. This has identified many opportunities, starting with the Leeds/Bradford city region.

As Brexit fast approaches, it is vital that we continue to foster a good economic and trading relationship between Ireland and the UK, making initiatives like this so important.

Galway Chamber, in collaboration with the British Embassy Dublin and NUI Galway, hosted a virtual launch event of this initiative on Thursday, 17th December and on enhancing business links between our regions.

Speakers included:

  • British Ambassador to Ireland, H.E. Mr. Paul Johnston
  • Hildegarde Naughton TD, Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport.
  • Prof Jonathan Levie, NUI Galway will present an overview on the key findings of the report
  • City/ County officials and development agencies from both Galway/ Mayo and Leeds City Region will discuss their regions and the opportunities for partnership
