The idea for the Forum was conceived by economist David McWilliams who then informed the Irish Government.[3][4][5] The hosting of the event caused a political disagreement between Irish Minister for Foreign AffairsMicheál Martin and Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and EmploymentMary Coughlan.[3] The Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment sought successful members of the Irish diaspora, with TaoiseachBrian Cowen personally inviting them to attend the event in April.[3][4] However, Martin claimed that the “global Irish family” was his department’s responsibility.[3] Martin launched the event on the afternoon of 1 September 2009.[6]
