WDC announce new five year strategy

A total of €48 million is being made available to support new companies, as well as providing loans for community development projects across the west and north west.

This is one of the plans contained in the Western Development Commission’s new five year strategy, titled ‘Work Smarter, Live Better’.

The strategy will also see the investment of €1 million from the Dormant Accounts Fund for digital hubs throughout the region.

CEO of the WDC, Tomás Ó Síocháin, says it is going to take a 10 year view and identify one or two sectors where it can make a difference in the western region.
