The committee helps develop and shape Ibec's priorities and strategies across general EU affairs, international trade and wider global issues. Committee meetings are regularly addressed by senior civil servants, elected representatives (Ministers / TDs / MEPs) and high-profile EU affairs professionals, providing for a valuable discussion forum, information exchange platform and networking opportunity.
The committee is chaired by Edel Creely, Group Managing Director of Trilogy Technologies and former President of Ibec (2017-2018). The secretariat is led by Pat Ivory, Ibec's Director of EU & International Affairs, supported by the wider EU & International Affairs team in Ibec HQ and Brussels.
We actively encourage all Ibec member companies with a particular interest or stake in European affairs or international trade policy to participate in our committee and to contribute to our activities. For more information, please contact any member of the EU & International Affairs Unit.
