Over one hundred guests joined the Austrian Trade Commissioner Günther Sucher at the annual Christmas Networking Event on 26 November 2008 at the Order of Malta in Ballsbridge.

A popular occasion for networkers to meet and keep in touch in a sociable environment, the event once again proved a great success. In his welcoming note, Mr Sucher stressed the positive relations between Austria and Ireland both on a personal and economic level and said it was a pleasure to see networkers chatting and enjoying the Austrian specialities provided.

Special guest of the evening was the winner of the Austrian Pavilions’ Pellets Competition at the Sustainable Building Show 2008 at the RDS, Ms Marian Shanahan of Terenure, who was awarded a selection of Austrian wines. Other guests included Austrian Ambassador Dr Walter Hagg, Minister Karin Fichtinger-Grohe, Consul Klaus Ranner and Mr Paul Dubsky, President of the Irish-Austrian Society.

Many thanks to the Order of Malta and particularly Ms Peta Taaffe who kindly made their premises available for the evening.
