Achievements in 2014 Lay Foundation for Sustainable Growth

Following the release of the 2014 Exchequer Statement today (05/01/15), Chambers Ireland has called on Government to maintain its focus on job creation and cost management.

Speaking this afternoon, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive, Chambers Ireland said “The 2014 Exchequer Statement provides evidence of just how far the Irish economy has progressed in the past twelve months. The increases in tax receipts, particularly in VAT and Capital Gains Tax, point to a significant growth in economic activity and an improvement in the domestic economy.”

“2015 will be a watershed year for Ireland’s economic recovery and we must continue to build on the strong performance of 2014. However risks remain, many outside our control such as ongoing international developments. Therefore Government must not lose focus and needs to continue to commit to the prioritisation of job creation and cost containment in the economy as the key drivers of competitiveness,” he concluded.
