In a show of strength and county-wide unity all seven Chamber’s of Commerce in County Kerry have come together to sign an agreement which will see them represent the entire county on Regional and National issues, as well as supporting each other on local business issues.

In order to further develop business interests in the county, all seven Chambers from Kerry including Dingle, Tralee, Kenmare, Castleisland, Killorglin, Listowel and Killarney met on September 13 in Tralee, to put pen-to-paper on a formal agreement.

The seven Chambers in Kerry will be collaborating on several key projects which they say will enhance the entire county, in order to develop greater opportunities for Job Creation, Infrastructure development, funding and Investment into Kerry.

Each Chamber will remain autonomous/independent of each other, as will their individual members, but a crucial element to the agreement will see the ‘Kerry Chambers’ supporting each other on local and regional issues, including combining resources to further support their own individual business member’s interests.

This is the first time that all businesses in Kerry will have an opportunity to work closely together through their own local chamber, and will lend a stronger voice for individual businesses. Every sector, industry and area of county Kerry will be represented, with this agreement ensuring greater collaboration.

Ken Tobin of Tralee Chamber Alliance said; “This alliance will enable us to provide a strong counter-balance for investment and job creation in Kerry, as well as supporting the growth of businesses within Kerry”.

Speaking at the signing of the agreement Stephen Stack of Listowel Community & Business Alliance said; “This presents a huge opportunity for the various chambers to learn from and support each other, to provide a stronger support for businesses in their own areas of Kerry.”
