The new Programme for Government is fresh off the press and sets out important commitments in areas such as enterprise, education, housing, investment and regional development. It is vital that objectives are matched with firm spending commitments.
The government needs to think big, plan for the long-term and invest accordingly. It is up to political parties and TDs across the spectrum to ensure that the political dynamic of a minority led government does not curtail ambition and result in a series of insipid policy compromises.
This update provides a comprehensive business perspective on the Programme. I hope you find it useful.
