According to Minister of State for Trade Promotion, Digital and Company Regulation Robert Troy TD, artificial intelligence will be most transformative in how businesses operate into the future. This was discussed recently when Dungarvan & West Waterford Chamber Members were joined by the Minister for a Q&A session.

The Minister also informed members that he will be releasing the new National Artificial Intelligence Strategy in the coming weeks.

During this event, which was sponsored by Connors & Co Chartered Accountants Waterford, members got to ask the Minister questions on a variety of topics including;

Insurance, access to finance and the reduction in traditional banks, potential digital grants & supports for businesses. SME Taskforce & Growth plan, Broadband, the vaccine rollout, the Technological University for the South East and lots more.

Facilitated by Mary O Neill from WLR FM’s The Hot Desk, attendees found it of benefit to speak directly to a government Minister on topics affecting their day-to-day business and the future of the area.
