The findings of the research project ‘Reviving the Border Region Economy in a new era of peace and devolved government’ was discussed at this conference, which took place in the Radisson Blu Farnham Estate Hotel in Cavan on Thursday 17-Friday 18 November 2011. The researchers – Dr John Bradley, formerly of the Economic and Social Research Institute in Dublin, and Professor Michael Best of the University of Massachusetts – presented their findings under four headings:
- the challenges the region faces because of its peripherality;
- developing the region’s SMEs;
- regional consumer behaviour as a possible driver of growth;
- and the role of the region’s tourism product.
