We’re on the world stage,
isn’t it time we played the lead?
Ireland remains one of the world’s most open economies. Irish business is increasingly global in focus, based on innovative manufacturing and internationally traded services.
Our prosperity is determined by important economic and strategic ties with major global partners. Investment and trade success will be central to our economic recovery and we must continue to foster effective international links.
