A Model of Substance
This Ibec campaign tells the story of the evolution and substance of the Irish business model.
Watch the official campaign video.
Why this campaign matters
Substance has taken Ireland from economic laggard to the fastest growing economy in the developed world, and substance will help us lead both the economy and society to an assured future.
For small open countries like Ireland we must ensure that global economies remain committed to the open policies that have benefitted so many and that the nature and structure of the Irish economic model is understood.
It is therefore vital that business and other stakeholders understand how we have got to where we are today and to talk about the development of Ireland as a model of substance.
