Since its inception, the SelectUSA office in Ireland has helped to facilitate over $1.3 billion worth of Irish investment which has resulted the creation of more than 5,000 jobs the United States, as per the Cork Chamber website.
This year’s edition aims to offer an overview of the US economy as well as practical inside information from companies that have set up US operations in recent years. The event will be hosted by Cork Chamber in partnership with the US Embassy in Ireland on Friday 3rd April at the Maryborough House Hotel. The speakers from support organisations include: US Embassy; US Consular and US Customs & Border Protection; OCO Global; accounting and legal experts. They will be joined by industry panellists:

Our CEO will explain our achievements in US territories since our expansion announced by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar last March at an event in Washington DC. The new US clinical trial unit was initially staffed by three of our valuable employees who moved from Atlantia’s facility in Blackpool, Cork, to Chicago to work there. Atlantia has recent hired a further six people in Chicago. Within the next six to eight months, a further 10 to 12 new staff are set to join the Chicago workforce. In an interview with The Irish Examiner, Andrea Doolan said that Atlantia Food Clinical Trials has already grown too big for the Chicago office it opened a year ago, and it is now moving to bigger premises. She also stated that the demand for our services has exceeded expectations and we simply need much more room to accommodate our operations.
We are happy to keep providing excellent multinational clinical trial services to companies aiming to validate the health benefits of their food, probiotics, live therapeutics products through human clinical trials.
