The new President of the Local Chamber of Commerce says he will push for the expansion of Magee and campaign for better road networks during his year in post.
Gavin Killeen, managing director of successful Derry company, Nuprint, was speaking after he officially took over the chain of office following the Chamber’s AGM on THursday night.
“For me, the priority will be the themes of education and skills,” said Mr Killeen. “I am convinced that employers must lead the changes in the education and skills environment. There will be no let-up from the Chamber in the core demands of better road networks and the expansion of Magee, but we also need to make an almighty push on the areas where we can have the greatest impact. Skills are at the heart of this. One of our objectives must be to persuade more of our students who go away to study to return home after completing their degrees.”
