Robert Troy, Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment in the Irish Government, has accepted an invitation to address the annual dinner of The Fed Ireland.

The event on March 22 in the Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone, is on the eve of the organisation’s AGM .

As the Minister with responsibility for trade promotion, digital and company regulation Mr Troy has supported the Competition Amendment Bill which tackles two measures in the Government’s plan for insurance reform.  

Last month (January) Mr Troy said the Bill represented: “a significant step-change in competition enforcement to effectively tackle white-collar crime in Ireland and will be instrumental in supporting the ongoing work to protect and promote a competitive and fair marketplace that works for consumers and business alike”.

He said that once it was law, the State’s agencies would: “have the power to enforce competition law much more effectively, giving them more teeth to protect consumers and crack down on anti-competitive practices – to break up cartels where they exist and deter and punish companies abusing their dominant position in the market.”

Mr Troy, 40, has been the elected Fianna Fail representative (TD) for the Longford-Westmeath constituency since 2011.
