Britain, Ireland, Australia and Canada – four nations famed for their penchant for sport and racing in particular ... so what better way to bring them all together than a day out at France Galop’s flagship racecourse, the Hippodrome d’Auteuil. This is exactly what the Franco-British Chamber, in association with NetworkIrlande, Australian Business in Europe, and the France-Canada Chamber of Commerce did on the 27th of June 2016 and, non-surprisingly, the event was a sell out with over 70 guests having reserved their places for this exclusive 'Luncheon at the Races'.



Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine's French Visit



The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed T.D., attended a meeting of EU agriculture ministers in France on 1 and 2 September.  The informal gathering, called by French agriculture minister, Stephane Le Foll, against the backdrop of the UK decision to leave the EU and the volatility being experienced in agricultural markets, discussed the role and future place of the Common Agricultural Policy in the European Project.  Minister Creed commented that the discussions were a useful opportunity to exchange initial views on the key challenges facing the CAP as the EU begins to consider how the policy will develop for the period post-2020.
