Chamber CEOs Meet with Minister Humphreys
Yesterday (Thursday April 16), Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, hosted a meeting of 20 CEO’s representing Chambers throughout Ireland, including Ennis Chamber.
Ennis Chamber CEO Margaret O’Brien said, “The Minister spoke to each of us individually and gave her full attention and asked questions around the key issues identified by each speaker.
As CEO representing Ennis Chamber, I had the opportunity to communicate the fear local business owners have around taking on additional debt and like my Chamber colleagues, urged the Minister to consider a substantial cash stimulus package for all affected businesses to help kick-start the economy.
Among the other issues raised on behalf of our members is the need for a roadmap to explain how businesses will exit the current situation.
Minister Humhreys was very attentive and positive, and gave very generously of her time, with the meeting lasting just shy of two hours.
Also in attendance were senior civil servants and staff of Chambers Ireland, including CEO Ian Talbot.
