The South West Regional Authority is a statutory public body with responsibility for strategic planning in the region. The authority also makes recommendations on government investment programmes and monitors and reviews the operation of the National Development Plan.
From the 8th to the 9th of October 2013, the South West and Mid-West Regional Authorities will jointly host a TRAP project meeting and Irish study visits. This event will provide an ideal platform to enable the exchange of good practice between the TRAP Irish partners and the other TRAP partners.
Through the INTERREG IVC DESUR project, the South West Regional Authority co-financed a new Smarter Business Guide, The Sustainability Factor: Corporate Social Responsibility and SMEs. This document will outline the actions taken by Chambers Ireland to produce and promote this guide.
