President of Drogheda and District Chamber, Shona McManus has welcomed the launch of the M1 Corridor jobs and investment initiative.

Speaking ahead of the launch by the Minister for Planning, Housing and Local Government, Eoghan Murphy TD at Castlebellingham this morning, the Chamber President described the M1 Corridor project as “a truly ground-up initiative that has been developed and supported by local stakeholders across the region.”

Shona sees the initiative as a key platform for sustainability and driving growth in a location that’s at the centre of Ireland’s economic growth and second to none for business and investment. This will help create much needed jobs and careers in a great region in which to work, live, study and play.

“We expect this M1 Corridor initiative will help strengthen Drogheda and the wider region’s position as it competes both nationally and internationally for foreign direct investment; 2nd site and Start-Up companies. Already, we have excellent infrastructure and a talented workforce with a broad range of skills and qualifications. Add to that our unrivalled location, the fastest broadband and a great coastal lifestyle. While there are still some challenges to address, never before have we been in a stronger position to grow and prosper,” concluded Shona. #elevatingdrogheda
