Notice of Research and Consultation Westmeath Diaspora Strategy 2017-2021
In line with Global Irish – Ireland’s Diaspora Policy, Westmeath County Council is developing the Westmeath Diaspora Strategy 2017-2021.
Westmeath’s diaspora can play an important role in the county’s economic, social and cultural development. There are many people of Westmeath origin who live abroad but who have a sense of connection to their county of origin. The new strategy will identify how Westmeath can build relationships with its diaspora that will benefit local development and strengthen links between diaspora communities and Westmeath.
Research and consultation
In developing the strategy, Westmeath County Council wishes to gather views from people living in Westmeath and from Westmeath’s diaspora communities living overseas.
