Why Galway?

  • Galway Chamber of Commerce has launched a new campaign aimed at attracting new companies and investment to the city, and the western region.

    "Why Galway" is an initiative that seeks to bring 40 foreign direct investment companies to the area over the next 5 years, creating some 3,000 additional jobs.

    The campaign also promotes Galway and the West as a location for domestic enterprises and entrepreneurs, and it's supported by Galway Chamber, Galway City Council, IDA Ireland and over 50 groups and organisations.

    While 16 FDI companies have announced or expanded their operations in Galway in the last 3 years, creating over 1200 new jobs, Galway Chamber says they want to ensure that this growth continues, and have launched a website - Whygalway.com -  to provide information on investing, working, living and studying in Galway.
