Strong August Exchequer Receipts Demonstrates Increasing Opportunity for Strategic Investment

Sep 03, 2015

Chambers Ireland has today (2/09/2015) urged Government to use the increasingly strong position of Ireland’s public finances to invest strategically in Ireland’s future.

Speaking today, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive of Chambers Ireland said: “The improving performance of the Irish economy, particularly evidenced by the ongoing increases in income tax receipts and improved consumer sentiment, serve to demonstrate the increasing capacity Government will have for a level of strategic investment in Budget 2016.”

“Government will have choices to make as to how best to utilise Exchequer resources in Budget 2016. We believe that strategic investment will be the key to sustaining Ireland’s economic growth and must be prioritised in areas such as transport infrastructure and increasing the affordability of childcare. Investment in key areas such as these will increase the capacity of our economy to grow into the future.”, he concluded.
