Dear member,

 

I welcome the Government’s stimulus package announced this afternoon. It is both ambitious and comprehensive, addressing our lobbying effort and is an important step in rebooting the economy.

 

I attach a deck which includes an analysis on the various elements of the package including liquidity, upskilling, getting people back to work and infrastructure. The practical implementation of the package must now be swift and obtainable for business.

 

Tomorrow morning senior Government officials will host an Ibec members briefing from 08:30-09:15 on Webex which will allow for questions on any details of the package. Government officials participating on the briefing are as follows:

  • John Shaw – D/Taoiseach
  • Declan Hughes – D/Business, Enterprise and Innovation
  • John Hogan – D/Finance
  • John McKeon – D/Employment and Social Protection
  • David Moloney – D/Public Expenditure and Reform

Please find details to join the briefing:

We now turn our attention to safely bringing people and vibrancy back into commercial districts, offices, towns and cities to ensure the economic activity needed to reduce long term scarring in our society.
