The Atlantic Economic Corridor
The Atlantic Economic Corridor (AEC) is the term applied to a region along the Western seaboard, stretching from Kerry to Donegal. The objective of the AEC project is to maximise the region’s assets and connect the economic hubs, clusters and catchments of the region to generate a value proposition which will attract investment, support job creation and improve the quality of life for those who live in the region.
The counties covered by AEC project are: Donegal, Leitrim, Sligo, Roscommon, Mayo, Galway, Clare, Limerick, and Kerry.
The AEC project is overseen by the Atlantic Economic Corridor Taskforce which is chaired by Minister Canney and which includes key Government Departments and agencies, business representatives and Third Level Institutions.
