Economic development strategy for the Southeast to be launched - Cullinane
Speaking from Leinster House this evening after a meeting of the Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation adopted his draft Economic Development Strategy for the Southeast, Sinn Fein Senator David Cullinane said:
“I am very pleased that the Committee accepted my report. It is now an all-party Oireachtas strategy.
“The strategy is one of the most comprehensive conducted for the South East and it is based on considerable and wide-ranging consultation with groups and individuals from across the region.
“The report contains over 100 recommendations on what interventions are necessary across key sectors and areas.
The Southeast Economic Development Strategy (SEEDS) which is now all-Party Oireachtas strategy will be launched in Waterford city on Monday 16 September.
The report is the product of much hard work and I want to thank everyone who contributed and helped along the way.
I am passionate about the needs of Waterford and the region. I am committed to the strategy and I will do everything I can to ensure it is implemented.” ENDS
