Randox promotes Donegal to Diaspora in the US
Donegal will be promoted as a world-class place to live and do business, at a leading Irish-American event in Boston this week.
The annual conference of Irish Networks USA, which connects Irish associations in cities across the US in order to bolster business, cultural, and community links between the United States and Ireland, is taking place between 5th and 8th November.
Irish and Irish-American professionals living across the US will attend the event, to engage with the Irish diaspora and with key envoys from Irish businesses. Supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Ireland, those attending will have the opportunity to hear from speakers including the Irish Ambassador to the United States, Anne Anderson, and Mark Redmond, Chief Executive of the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland.
Additional backing for the event comes from Tourism Ireland and leading Donegal-based company, Randox Laboratories, which boasts facilities in Dungloe, as well as Co. Antrim and the Greater Washington DC area. Through reaching out to the Irish diaspora in the US, the company plans to promote the growing economy in Donegal through the creation of hundreds of new jobs over the next few years, as well as promote opportunities at the US facility near Washington DC.
The event kicks off on Thursday evening with a welcome gathering for those who have travelled to Boston from across the US, before the conference begins on Friday 6th November, where attendees will engage on a range of topics including global education, transatlantic business links, and the global Irish diaspora network. Delegates are then invited to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Irish Network Boston at the historic venue of Massachusetts Old State House.
Mark Campbell, Senior Manager at Randox Laboratories, is speaking at the conference:
“We are delighted to promote Donegal as a world-class destination for life-science professionals. Working with the diaspora network, we can get the message out there that Donegal has exciting career opportunities, great community networks and strong infrastructure, proving it to be a highly desirable place to work and live.
Additionally, as Randox expands its operations in the US, we are keen to promote our facility in the Greater Washington DC area where there will be increasing job opportunities over the next few months.”
