Chamber Network Calls for a Focus on Capital Investment
Apr 30, 2015
Chambers Ireland has today (30/04/15) called for a renewed focus by Government on capital investment. The call came during a meeting of the Chamber Executive Forum, a meeting of Chamber representatives from around the country where key issues facing Chamber members are discussed.
Speaking today, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive, Chambers Ireland said, “Recent signs regarding Ireland’s economic performance have been positive, further evidenced by this week’s announcement of spending increases in October’s budget. While we welcome a modest increase in expenditure, it is vital that capital investment is prioritised. We need to keep up with the pace of our recovery and ensure that the necessary infrastructure is in place to support and sustain our economic growth.”
Conor Healy, Chair of the Chamber Executive Forum and Chief Executive of Cork Chamber commented “Capital investment is vital to support a sustainable future. Our infrastructure needs must be met in tandem with our economic development. With historically low interest rates and the availability of European funding, now is the time to invest in our future.”
