Ireland ranks 7th most competitive country in the world in the latest IMD World Competitiveness Ranking 2019
In Philadelphia this week, a group of Irish men and women are gathered, reflecting the success of the 1998 Good Friday Agreement in bringing peace to Northern Ireland.
But they worry that a looming Brexit — and the British parliament’s hapless efforts to exit the European Union — are already threatening Ireland’s peace. And they wish that the United States, which god fathered the Good Friday deal, would take an active role in its preservation.
They know from personal experience the ugliness that awaits Ireland if the accord fails.
Congratulations to the Irish Echo on hosting their 2nd annual Small Business Big Impact Awards dinner on May 3rd in Boston. This event series was launched here in Philadelphia last year.
Congratulations to our members recognized on this year’s list:
