The County and City Enterprise Boards note the proposal of the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation to replace the County and City Enterprise Boards with a new network of Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs). The County and City Enterprise Boards would like to reassure all of our clients that during this process we will continue to deliver the full range of enterprise support services. We are working closely with the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, Enterprise Ireland and the Local Authorities to effect the proposed changes and ensure a smooth transition to the revised institutional arrangements which will continue to offer small businesses the support they need to start up, develop and grow.
