Last year, Ireland INC hosted a leadership breakfast in partnership with the New York Stock Exchange where the strengthening economic landscape across the island of Ireland and the growing footprint of Irish jobs in US senior leadership was celebrated. 

The event took place at the 11th annual Ireland Day at the New York Stock Exchange where business and political leaders gathered to discuss Irish US trade issues. Topics included the continued expansion of Foreign Direct Investment, as well as how to further two-way financing investment between Ireland and the United States and factors to help drive business growth for Irish and US companies. 

They also discussed furthering the collaboration and partnership between business and political stakeholders. Ireland Day, the only recognised Country day at the NYSE, was established as a C-Suite forum to promote Irish business interests globally.

“It was a real privilege to ring the bell at the NYSE on Ireland Day alongside Minister Foley, Congressman Richie Neal, Joe Kennedy III, and an array of other Irish business leaders. A huge thanks to Ian Hyland and the team at Ireland INC for ensuring that the Irish flag flies high during St. Patrick’s festivities in New York. As an American leading Pfizer in Ireland it’s so pleasing to see that the business, economic, political and social ties between the US and Ireland continue to grow,” said Deb Mangone, Vice President and Country Manager, Pfizer Healthcare Ireland.
