The event, sponsored by the Bank of Ireland, was attended by representatives of cultural and business organisations from all over the country, by senior government officials and by members of the diplomatic corps interested in the Chamber.
Commenting on the launch of the Plan, the Chamber’s Chief Executive, Audrey McKenna, said, “This evening’s event represents another important milestone in the evolution of the Chamber. Over the past 14 months, we’ve undertaken research and met with representatives of a wide range of business and cultural groups who responded positively to the concept of the Chamber.
“Our Strategic Plan describes how we plan to take the Chamber to the next level. We look forward to broadening our membership base and attracting the support of commercial partners that will help us deliver the plan.”
Gabriel Bannigan, Regional Manager – Dublin, Bank of Ireland said: “We are very conscious of the significant role that Arts, Heritage and Culture play and will continue to play in the recovery in our economic environment. We are pleased to sponsor this evening’s launch in the House of Lords, a historic location in the heart of the Dublin city’s business community”.
