9 March 2011.  the ITAA has this evening welcomed the appointment of Fine Gael TD for Dublin West, Leo Varadkar, as the new Minister for Transport and Tourism.

ITAA CEO, Simon Nugent,  said ” We see the unification of the two, previously separate briefs as a sensible  step by the Government at this challenging time.  We are optimistic that Minister Varadkar will focus on encouraging job creation in the sector and on  modernising regulation in the sector so as to relieve unneccessary burdens on business.   We look forward to a close and constructive working relationship with the Minister during his term.
