Cork Electronics Industry Association presented a conference on Wednesday 22nd May on a very important national topic. The conference offered engineers, industry leaders, policy makers and educators an opportunity to explore the topic of the role of manufacturing in Ireland.
The presentations were given by distinguished speakers and chaired by an illustrious entrepreneur CEIA, Sean Gayer. The presentations were followed by a panel discussion and questions and answers.
The Irish economy is recovering from its worse ever economic crisis. The strength and competitiveness of its manufacturing sector has declined over the past decade.
The good news is that there is rethink on the location of manufacturing and Ireland has the opportunity to ride on this wave of change and build on it. Social Networks will bring the customer and manufacturers closer together and will shorten product cycles. This conference will explore how Ireland can take advantage of this change and leverage it to become an important centre of excellence for manufacturing internationally.
National policy must support the renewed entrepreneurial thinking to enable Ireland’s competitiveness in the global economy.
