FGW Generators was delighted to welcome the Irish Ambassador for South Africa.

FGW Generators was delighted to welcome the Irish Ambassador for South Africa H.E. Fionnuala Gilsenan and Second Secretary Louisa Heneghan on Friday 6 December 2019 at their Cape Town Facility.

The Irish Government recently launched their new Africa Strategy on 28 November 2019. Building on Ireland’s longstanding engagement with Africa, ‘Global Ireland: Ireland’s Strategy for Africa to 2025’ will see Ireland strengthen political partnerships with African countries and institutions. It will put in place frameworks to boost trade and investment.

Ambassador Gilsenan was visiting Cape Town to ascertain how the Embassy could continue to engage and support the local Irish business community.

Welcoming Ambassador Gilsenan to the offices was Andrew Pigott of AJ Power, who introduced the business, discussed AJ Power’s investment in South Africa and the plans for the Group in Africa. They further spoke of the benefits of having a presence in South Africa along with its challenges.

We would like to thank the Ambassador and the Second Secretary for taking the time to visit our premises and wish the Ambassador every success in her tenure in South Africa.
