Infrastructure for Better Lives & Better Business
In our most recent submission on the National Development Plan, Ibec is calling on Government to deliver an ambitious programme of world class public services and infrastructure development
Ireland must offer people good living and working conditions to sustain economic success and remain attractive to local and global mobile talent pools. Following a period of economic recession and under-investment, severe problems have emerged in terms of housing affordability and supply, rising congestion, and inadequate provision of education and healthcare. Better Lives, Better Business aims to make Ireland a better place to live and work by persuading policymakers to address the challenges around the country's burgeoning capacity constraints.Read campaign report
