In March, the Ireland-U.S. Economic Business Relations Summit will host one of the top Irish American members of the new presidential administration team in New York. Former congressman Mick Mulvaney (R – South Carolina), who was appointed director of the Office of Management and Budget in February, is scheduled to be the guest speaker at the conference.

The summit, co-sponsored by the Ireland-U.S. Council and Ibec (formerly called the Irish Business and Employers Confederation), Ireland’s leading business network, will bring together corporate executives and policy leaders to discuss the future of financial relations between the U.S. and Ireland. Other speakers include Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross and Michael Martin, head of Fianna Fáil in Ireland.

Mulvaney, who was elected to the House of Representatives in 2011, has long been a vocal supporter of Irish causes on Capitol Hill, and has the support of the Irish immigrant lobby.

“Congressman Mulvaney has been a great friend of ours since he arrived on Capitol Hill in 2011. We look forward to working with him,” Irish Lobby for Immigration Reform chairman Ciaran Staunton told IrishCentral. ♦
