New LK Chamber president says government has done nothing for business

Patrick McGinley has been selected as the new President of the Letterkenny Chamber replacing out going president Paul Byrne.

It follows the Chamber’s AGM last night  at which a new Chamber Council was also elected.

Patrick McGinley said his new role will be challenging, predicting the intense negative effect of the economic downturn will continue for another 4 years.

He added that the government had done nothing, in its recent budget, to stimulate the economy and there were no measures to lessen the cost of doing business.

Mr McGinley said he will be keeping pressure on our TDs and local government to create the best environment for business in the North West.

He added that he wished to increase the membership of the chamber substantially and to continue to attract businesses who want to have their voice heard.
