A world-leading debt recovery company based in Gwynedd is proud to have been selected to attend a recent three-day, multi-sector, trade mission to Dublin in Ireland.
Carl Hackman, Strategic Director of CCI Credit Management Ltd (CCICM), thanked the Welsh Government for organising the mission and inviting him. He says: “It was a real pleasure to attend and network with so many entrepreneurial counterparts from both Wales and the Republic.
“I explained how we can provide world-class credit management advice, debt collection recovery, and lots of ancillary services such as litigation and insolvency, to commercial entities globally – particularly exporting businesses – and consumer companies based in Ireland.”
While in Dublin, Mr Hackman and the delegation attended a market briefing session and a business reception at the British Embassy, and enjoyed meetings with new and existing contacts to discuss potential export opportunities.
Ireland is one of Wales’ most important international trading partners. Thanks to its booming economy, proximity to the UK, similar legal system and familiar business culture, it’s a prime target for many firms seeking new international opportunities.
Mr Hackman adds: “CCICM is a world-leading business in its sector, with many multi-national corporations, Government departments, and SMB/Es as clients. At our head office near Porthmadog, we employ over 70 highly-skilled and specialist staff. We are also the founder and exclusive UK member of International Credit Exchange (ICE) – a unique partnership of collection agencies covering around 140 countries.”
Ireland’s economy continues to expand, according to the Welsh Government. In its autumn 2019 economic forecast, the European Commission predicted the nation’s GDP would grow by 5.6% over the year – up from 4% in its previous forecast, and the highest of any EU member state.
