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.”
