Paul Nolan European Parliament

Entrepreneurs gathered in the European Parliament in Brussels on 10th October 2018 for the fifth edition of the European Parliament of Enterprises, the largest exercise at European level in economic democracy.

Twelve entrepreneurs, representing Chambers across Ireland formed part of the Irish delegation. Paul Nolan, Group Development Manager, Dawn Meats represented Waterford Chamber. Mr Nolan said he was delighted to be given the opportunity through Chambers to address Trade Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström in the European Parliament regarding concerns of Irish beef farmers and processors about the amount and form of access that she is considering under the Mercosur trade deal for South American beef into the EU.

Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot, welcomed the strong Irish participation in the event and said, “With European elections due to take place next year, the objective of the Parliament of Enterprises is to enhance understanding between decision-makers and the real economy. Our delegation had the opportunity to address key EU figures, including Trade Commissioner, Cecilia Malmström and Chief Brexit Negotiator, Michel Barnier, where we highlighted not only the priorities of Irish entrepreneurs but also how European policy can be made more business-friendly.”

What Our Members Say

“We found the Toys 4.0 Engineers exhibition to be an excellent platform for us to showcase our business. The attendees were exactly the people we hoped to meet and we are delighted to have made new contacts as a result. We also unexpectedly had some success in making supplier connections with other exhibitors. The venue was ideal with adequate sound and space and the presentations were informative. Overall the event was professionally run and we had an excellent experience. We will definitely be exhibiting again next year. I cannot recommend the event highly enough.”
