Donegal County Council (Ireland) and Derry City and Strabane District Council (Northern Ireland) are organising the 'Ireland North West Trade Mission' to the North East of the United States, as part of the 'Gateway to Growth International Export Programme', which is financed by The Executive Office and the Irish Government.

This trip aims to link local businesses to potential markets in the US by offering them the chance to make new connections with potential investors and customers and learn from established enterprises in similar industry fields.

Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council, Councillor Michaela Boyle, will be among the delegates travelling to the US along with her counterpart in Donegal County Council An Cathaoirleach Nicholas Crossan, senior Council advisors and local businesses. "The North West has established an extensive network of contacts over the years in both Philadelphia and Boston based on our historic and cultural ties and shared business interests. The trip offers the chance to network and carry out market research in a business friendly environment", explains Boyle. 

Local companies have until September 6th to submit their expression of interest. Expert advice will be offered before and after the trade mission. To submit your expression of interest or to find out more please contact: Laverne O’Donnell at laverne.odonnell@derrystrabane.com
