The Capital Investment Programme announced in 2015, while welcome, is not sufficient to meet the needs of our future economic growth. Increased spending is required to ensure that Ireland is well positioned to meet the challenges of any future economic expansion. Investment in infrastructure will support Ireland’s economic growth for future generations. Government must look at increased capital investment and select projects that will have the greatest economic benefit. Priority areas for increased capital expenditure include: Housing, Water, Transport, Broadband and flood prevention.
