The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Brendan Carr launched his 'Greater Dublin’s Greater Than Ever' #GDGTE initiative this morning in the Oak Room of Dublin’s Mansion House. Minister for Financial Services, Eoghan Murphy T.D. was also in attendance and spoke at the launch.

'Greater Dublin’s Greater Than Ever' #GDGTE will market Dublin as a great place to set up and do business and highlights what the Greater Dublin Region has to offer to inward investor businesses looking to invest and establish an assured EU base.  

It has been facilitated by the British Irish Chamber of Commerce who produced both a short promotional video and presentation brochure to promote the project.

The initiative aims to present the great case for investing in the Greater Dublin Region and has been supported by a number of key stakeholders operating in the Greater Dublin Region including CBRE, MERC Partners, Dublin Town and DIT.
The Promotional Video highlights what Dublin has to offer to potential investors under the headings “Our Success So Far”, “What Dublin Can Offer” and “Why Choose Dublin” with contributions from:

• The Lord Mayor of Dublin
• Minister of State, Eoghan Murphy
• The Dublin Commissioner for Startups, Niamh Bushnell
• Managing Partner of MERC Partners Executive Search, Ruth Curran
• Head of Research at CBRE, Marie Hunt
• President of DIT, Professor Brian Norton
• Chief Communications Officer at Dublin Airport, Paul O’Kane, 
• Dublin Town CEO, Richard Guiney
• South Dublin Chamber of Commerce CEO, Peter Byrne

The accompanying brochure presents key facts relating to the attractiveness of Dublin for investment covering six key areas of financial services and regulation - infrastructure, access, skills and workforce, education/research and as a location for startups and entrepreneurs.
Speaking at the launch, Lord Mayor of Dublin, Brendan Carr said, "For those companies that need to maintain an EU base post-Brexit, Dublin offers a great solution. Post-Brexit, Dublin will be the only English-speaking capital remaining in the EU. We have a highly-educated, skilled and enthusiastic workforce that has already attracted many of the world’s top companies to set-up here."

He added, "In addition to this we are investing in the infrastructure that will be needed to support companies looking to establish a base in Dublin. The Dublin City Development Plan (2016-2022) will see many more houses, apartments, hotels and offices coming on stream, in addition to the significant development that is already underway."
