Statement from Minister Coveney on IFA Presidential election

I would like to congratulate Joe Healy on his election as the new President of the IFA following a keenly fought election campaign.

The IFA is an organisation which provides strong representation for farmers across a range of sectors. I have always enjoyed a good working relationship with the IFA and I look forward to continuing this with Joe.

The agriculture industry is a key economic driver for Ireland and we all recognise its essential role in Ireland’s economy. Last year alone the value of Irish food and drink exports increased to exceed €10.8 billion for the first time.

I would like to wish Joe the very best as he takes office and we continue to work together to ensure that our industry is a world class food producer and exporter.
