Cork Chamber is delighted to partner with the Irish American Business Chamber Network in Philadelphia to present this webinar focused on the strengthening of trading links and connectivity between Cork and Pennsylvania.
As the Brexit deadline creeps closer, it is imperative that Ireland identifies ways to maintain our critical trading relationships with the rest of the world and reduce our dependency on the UK. Following the announcement earlier this year of the start of a new weekly direct container shipping service from Cork to the USA operated by ICL, Ireland is now more strategically connected to the East Coast USA, and the 10-day journey offers exporters on both sides of the Atlantic the most reliable and fastest delivery times for their supply chains. The first stop on the US side is at the Port of Chester in Pennsylvania.
Join us to hear from panelists Conor Mowlds, Chief Commercial Officer, Port of Cork Company, and Jeffery L. Culbertson, CPE, Chief Commercial Officer, PSA Penn Terminals, LLC, who will discuss the role of their respective port authorities in driving developments in infrastructure and connectivity, thereby supporting the economic development of their local regions, and enhancing our international trading relationships.
