EQUAL Ireland will travel with An Tánaiste Mr. Eamon Gilmore, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Trade, this coming April, as participants in an Ireland Trade Delegation to Istanbul and Ankara.
We will be meeting new organisations in a number of areas where we have education interests and renewing relationships with our friends in the Turkey National Ministry of Education.
The key purpose of our visit is to establish stronger Education and Social Partner connections between our two countries and in particular we will be exploring the possibilities of attracting Turkish participants to take our BA in Business Enterprise and Community Development here at home in Galway.
Technological organisations at the leading edge of personal assistive inclusive technologies will be on our agenda with regard to our EQUAbilITy Project and a Centre of Excellence in Recruitment in Istanbul who is interested in our LiveCVPlus platform will also form part of our itinerary
Finally EQUAL Ireland hope to engage with the Turkey Social Partners in Istanbul with a view to attending an International Workers Conference of Turkish, Indian, Brazilian and Malawian Delegates
