A Manifesto For Ireland’s Future From Chamber’s Ireland Network

Chambers ManifestoGeneral Election 2016 will prove to be a key moment in the evolution of the Irish State. The next Government returned by the people will ultimately be responsible for determining whether or not Ireland can shed its status as an economy prone to high levels of volatility and boom-bust cycles, and move instead into an era of well managed, sustainable economic growth that can benefit all of its citizens. While the core issues at stake in the last general election were how to ensure the basic survival of the State and secure our economic recovery, thankfully the landscape has changed vastly since then. Despite having recently exited an international bailout programme, Ireland is now ranked amongst the top performing economies in the OECD and has managed to distinguish itself from the other struggling economies of the EU. There is no doubt that Ireland has undergone drastic changes over the last five years, and we have made significant improvements in how we manage our economy and organise our society. The questions we must ask ourselves now are where do we want to be in five years time, and how do we get there. The Chambers Ireland vision for the Ireland of 2021 is one of innovation, entrepreneurship, inclusiveness and sustainable economic growth, and this manifesto sets out a roadmap for the next Government in reaching this vision for 2021.
