Cork Chamber said the launch of the Port of Cork Company’s new 13.5-hectare Cork Container Terminal in Ringaskiddy represents a big step forward for Cork and the Port of Cork.
“Congratulations to all the team involved. This new strategic terminal will offer greater efficiencies, in fact the highest of any European port thus demonstrating the global nature of our region when it comes to international trade, connectivity and innovation,” said Ronan Murray, President of Cork Chamber.
“As Cork continues to grow and position itself on a global scale, it’s important the Government also continues with the accelerated delivery of the M28 to compliment this new terminal development and maintain the strategic enhancement of the Cork region.”
“This state-of-the-art terminal and significant marine infrastructural investment positions the Cork region to be at the centre of global trade and investment into the future. It is a key enabler for continued foreign and indigenous investment in the region. There has been a number of major capital investment and job announcements over the last year and this new positive development will accelerate that trend,” he said.
