President Higgins gave the keynote speech at an event to mark the 200th anniversary of the Cork Chamber of Commerce. 

In his first address to a business audience since his second term inauguration, the President addressed attendees at a dinner for the city’s business leaders. 

Over the past number of years, President Higgins has played an active part in the promotion of Ireland's trade links, working with business leaders at home and abroad to encourage investment in Ireland. 

He joined the Cork business community in celebration of one of the oldest institutions on the island of Ireland, and used the opportunity to commend the Cork Chamber and its member companies for the work they do as they nurture relationships between business and society that place human flourishing at their core.
