Promoting Doing Business in Donegal are from left: Matthew Pearson, Pearson Foods; Liam Doherty, Sean Doherty Fruit and Veg; Edel Patton, Patton Eggs; John patton, Patton Eggs, Joe Doherty, Inishowen Country Kitchen; Thomas Hughes, Donegal Rapeseed Oil; Andrew McElhinney, O’Donnell’s Bakery; Michael O’Donnell, Island Seafoods and Sharon Morrow, Island Seafoods.People interested in business in Donegal, including those already established or those hoping to start something new, are being urged to come along to the county’s first ever ‘Doing Business in Donegal’ event at the LYIT this Saturday April 26th.Organisers of the free event have assembled a superb line-up of speakers with a broad range of topics from finance, business, marketing, public relations, online business, entrepreneurship, motivation and much more.The idea, says Michael Tunney, head of Local Enterprise in Donegal, is that different rooms will simultaneously host a number of speakers and people who come along on the day will simply pick and choose which ones they’d like to attend. “We have always tried to take on board the feedback we have received from local businesses in Donegal and one of the things we have heard back from Enterprise Week for instance was that they’d love to have something like this – on one day and at the weekend.“In many respects this is like a mini Enterprise Week albeit rolled up into a single day. We have lined up great speakers on topics that have been most popular and requested for Enterprise Week and we’re hoping that with everything in one venue and on one day, there will be a positive response from the Donegal business community and those interested in starting business in the county.”Until recently Mr Tunney had been CEO of Donegal County Enterprise Board, who had forged strong links with the business community in Donegal over a 20-year period and were responsible for events like Enterprising Donegal Business Week over the past decade.Since April 15th the Board has now become the Local Enterprise Office and is part of Donegal County Council, but the experienced staff will continue to work with businesses across the county. Indeed, while they have been very much at the forefront of the organisation for the Doing Business in Donegal day on Saturday 26th, the event itself is once again a collaborative effort.“An event like this works best when there is co-operation and a multi-strand approach taken and once again we are delighted that the day will go ahead thanks to the support of a number of other business partners and agencies,” Mr. Tunney said.Pre-registration for the Doing Business in Donegal event is now available by visiting the website localenterprise.ie/donegal but it is not necessary to register for individual speakers’ events. You can also register by calling 07491 60735.Registration will also take place at 9.30am on the day but pre-registration is highly recommended.The Saturday will begin with a keynote address at 10am for all in attendance from motivational speaker Pádraig Ó’Máille and that will be followed by the morning sessions with multiple options available and people free to choose which of the speakers they like to hear. There will be more great speakers after lunch with those who attend once again free to choose which talks they’d like to attend and the day will wrap up with a final inspirational address from Jason Black.“We realise that people are giving up their Saturday to come along to an event like this and we will have a few little incentives on the day including the opportunity for someone to win a Kindle Fire. That said, the event has been put together in response to requests from businesses in Donegal and we’re certain that our local businesses will want to be there anyway,” Mr Tunney concluded.GREAT LINE-UP PLANNED FOR ‘DOING BUSINESS IN DONEGAL’ EVENT was last modified: April 22nd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Doing Business In DonegaldonegalletterkennyLYITMichael Tunney
Moscow, Russia – In its end-of-year official report, the Russian Foreign Ministry indicated that Russia, as a permanent member of the UN Security Council, has made a substantial contribution to resolving conflicts and crises in Mali, Somalia, Sudan and the Central African Republic and many other African countries.Russia also provided targeted humanitarian relief aid to Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia and Cameroon. The report, however, did not state the total amount that was spent on humanitarian aid to Africa in 2015.With regards to health, Russia’s contribution to the international effort to fight the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa (mainly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone) was estimated at around $60 million, according to an international department head of Russia’s health watchdog Rospotrebnadzor. Russia continues participating in the joint effort to create a vaccine against the Ebola virus, which is expected to be ready for mass use in early 2016, the director of the Health Ministry’s department Marina Shevyreva said. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the deadly Ebola virus has killed some 11,300 people in West Africa.Last February, to ease the situation of refugees who have been streaming from neighbouring states into Cameroon, the Russian government delivered provided food aid for refugees amounting to US$ 2.5 million (1.3 billion CFA francs).According to statistics issued by the Cameroon government and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, around 300,000 refugees from Nigeria and the Central African Republic have sought refuge in Cameroon.The Republic of Burundi on May 13 last year saw a coup attempt and as a result threw the country into chaos. Burundi descended into violence after President Pierre Nkurunziza announced he was running for a third term. The decision to run for a third term in office was seen by opponents as a contradiction to the constitution. Coup leader General Niyombare is currently on the run. The failure of their coup bid and re-election of Nkurunziza have not stopped the unrest in the country.Over the past years, Russia has played pivotal roles in helping resolve many multi-faceted conflicts on the continent. For instance last September, there was a three-way consultation, the first time within this format, with the participation of Sudanese Foreign Minister Ibrahim Ghandour and South Sudanese Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Minister Benjamin Barnaba, to utilize the “Moscow platform” to continue the dialogue on the issues that remain in the relations between the two states.The joint meeting made some important decisions by the Sudanese and South Sudanese foreign ministers, above all, regarding the need to implement – to the maximum degree and as soon as possible – all the provisions of the document on the inter-Sudanese settlement that were signed over the past two or three years.Russia welcomed the efforts to stabilize the situation in the Republic of South Sudan, where a conflict has been ongoing since 2013, as well as the signing of a peace agreement between the South Sudanese government and the opposition last August.Russia supported them to continue advocating for a political, diplomatic settlement of all outstanding issues, among other things, by following a corresponding approach at the UN Security Council.Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, meeting separately with the Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Ministers from Rwanda, Congo and Madagascar last year, stressed Russia’s preparedness to boost humanitarian aid to natural and man-made disasters regions as well as continue helping to find lasting solutions to conflicts in Africa.“We agree that various conflicts in Africa require heightened attention of the world community and the UN, primarily in order to support the approaches of Africans who know better than others how to approach complicated issues on their continent,” Lavrov told Rwandan Louise Mushikiwabo during a joint media conference held last October in Moscow.They further shared opinions on the events in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and the African Great Lakes Region as a whole, the Horn of Africa, the Central African Republic and South Sudan.As always, Russia has agreed on the need to contribute to the subregional organizations on the continent and to continue consolidating the peacemaking potential of the African Union (AU). In addition, Russia regularly provides funds for the annual training of about 80 peacemakers from African countries.“We will help strengthen the peacekeeping potential of African countries in the form of training peacekeepers from African countries and helping them equip their peacekeeping contingents,” Lavrov said in January last year after talks with Burundi Foreign Minister Laurent Kavakure.In all discussions and consultations held throughout 2015, both African and Russian sides have had in-depth exchange of opinions on key issues on the African agenda with a particular focus on easing crisis situations in Africa.Russian President Vladimir Putin stressed at a previous ceremony when receiving credentials from ambassadors of several foreign countries, including diplomats of several African states, that Russia has planned to give all necessary humanitarian assistance to conflict-stricken African countries.
