    Default Minister Shatter trying to drum up business between Ireland and Israel

    I mentioned this in another thread, but I then thought it deserves a thread of its own......
    Yesterday the Minister attended the inaugural meeting in Israel of the Israel Ireland Business Network in Tel Aviv University. Over the past few months, the Network which was established by Clyde Hutchinson, has expanded from an initial idea to its current membership of 300. The Network links young professionals, companies and research institutes engaged in technology development, research and innovation. Inaugurating the Network in Israel today, the Minister emphasised that Ireland was open for business, provided a positive environment for new business, research partnerships and innovation and that the Irish Government was committed to supporting research and development in high tech industry. Commenting on the fact that Israeli companies have more companies quoted on NASDAQ than the EU 27 combined, the Minister said “Ireland would like to emulate the Israeli experience in the area of company formation and innovation in indigeneous high tech industry and research”. The Minister pointed to the commonality of interests between both countries in the area of economic and industrial development and innovation. Commenting on the events of the day the Minister said “There is much Ireland and Israel hold in common and that should be a key focus of our interaction. We both have a significant stake in research, technology development and innovation. Both our economies depend on SMEs and export markets to deliver jobs, growth and economic stability. We also have much to learn from each other in areas of concern to our citizens such as road safety. If anything, today demonstrated the important and substantive issues of common concern to our citizens which link Ireland, Israel and indeed many other countries and how we can work together, at individual, company and government level for our mutual benefit”.

    Now I hope Minister Shatter succeeds. I agree with him that Ireland and Israel can work together for mutual benefit. I think that for him to go to Israel and push the fact that Ireland is open for business is a very positive move. I also notice that he is in Israel encouraging all members of the Irish Diaspora in Israel to visit Ireland and participate in the gathering. That's also good. I have a number of Israeli friends visiting here at the moment. They have never been here before and they are having a great time. They think Ireland is a wonderful country and they are having a ball. I know that they will go back to Israel and recommend Ireland as a country to visit and hopefully in the future we will see an increase in Israeli tourists coming here

    Folks, make sure your Irish passports are secured fully, these chancers are casing the place seeking to procure them.
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    Considering the hatred fomented by the left here I worry Israelis will be turned off when they come here. Those I have net this year have all said they have enjoyed Ireland and have been made welcome. It seems the hate-Israel brigade are the student union bar loony left navel gazing types who are out of touch with ordinary people.

    Since the Israelis consider Shatter to be their man in the Dail im sure he can be depended on to look after Israeli Irish Interests.

    There is some interesting comments at the bottom of this Pro-Shatter article.
