We, in conjunction with Wexford County Council and other stakeholders, have been building links with Savannah Georgia over the past 12-18 months.
Following a visit by the Savannah Economic Development Authority to Wexford in October 2016, Wexford County Council and Wexford Enterprise Centre have begun to explore a business corridor between SE Ireland and Savannah, Georgia and the wider southern area of the United States. The aim of the corridor is to generate business-to-business opportunities and support expansion of business on both sides of the Atlantic.
In April 2017, the World Trade Centre Savannah will host a familiarisation event for companies interested in expansion/trade in the US. We have already sought soft expressions of interest from business located in Wexford and targeted all EI exporting companies with an invitation to the event.
This is a unique opportunity and may be of interest to you in growing your business. The costs of the trip will be covered by WTC Savannah, with travel to and from Savannah to be organised yourself. The closing date for receipt of applications is January 20th 2017.
