Small firms’ as­soc chair re-elected

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - NEWS -

SUE O’Neill has been re-elected as chair of the Small Firms As­so­ci­a­tion for a two-year term. Ms O’Neill has served as the lobby group’s chair since 2016.

In a state­ment, the or­gan­i­sa­tion said that Ms O’Neill’s key pri­or­ity will be to lobby Govern­ment for the in­tro­duc­tion and im­ple­men­ta­tion of a Na­tional Small Busi­ness Strat­egy for Ire­land.

This ini­tia­tive is calling on the Govern­ment to tar­get the devel­op­ment of small busi­ness across all re­gions “with just as much en­ergy and strate­gic fo­cus as they have put on at­tract­ing For­eign Di­rect In­vest­ment.”

She will also urge the Govern­ment to safe­guard small firms against ris­ing costs and the ero­sion of com­pet­i­tive­ness.
