In 2015 Chambers of Commerce and a group of Action Oriented Partners from nine western counties (Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim, Roscommon, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Limerick, Kerry) signed up to a Charter to develop the Atlantic Economic Corridor (AEC). Almost three thousand businesses employing more than 80,000 people operate within the AEC. The goal of developing a 'city of scale effect' will enable the AEC to present opportunities for investment and job creation, bringing wealth and population growth to the region and resulting in a more balanced economy in the island as a whole.
Towards this end the AEC Business Forum is sponsoring this study of the economy of the Atlantic Economic Corridor in partnership with Local Authorities, State Agencies, and Business/Community Groups in the corridor. The study will cover the whole AEC region, with the initial focus of this report on the economy of County Mayo.
