Congratulations to newly elected Taoiseach Leo Varadkar TD


Waterford Chamber would today (14th June 2017) like to welcome the election of Leo Varadkar TD as Taoiseach.


Paul Nolan, President of Waterford Chamber said, “I would like to congratulate, Leo Varadkar TD on his election to the office of An Taoiseach and wish him every success in his new role as leader of the country. As a Deputy of Dáil Éireann and Minister, Leo Varadkar TD has always made time to engage with and listen to the interests and concerns of the business community across Waterford and the South East. We look forward to further positive engagement in coming months and years.


“Currently the number one priority for Chambers across the country is increased capital investment and delivery of key infrastructure projects that can enable future growth and protect economic competitiveness. We welcome An Taoiseach’s vocal commitment to increasing capital investment and we urge him to deliver on this commitment. Ensuring we have a resilient economy must be our priority and it is our view that investment, including the identification and use of alternative funding models, and fiscal prudence must be balanced.”

Statement in respect of job losses at Waterford Stanley


Reacting to the news this morning that Waterford Stanley are to cut their workforce from 57 to 24 later this year, Waterford Chamber CEO Gerald Hurley said: "This is very concerning and a disappointing announcement for Waterford. The recent CSO figures showing unemployment for the region as the highest in the country at 9.4% does not make for light reading and this is an additional blow.


"Waterford Stanley has been a significant employer in the city for many years and a loyal member of Waterford Chamber. We offer every assistance to them at this difficult time. We are calling on the Government and local agencies to step up and make job creation within the region an immediate priority."
