Budget 2019 - The Chamber's View
Dublin Chamber’s Budget campaign this year put the risks of Brexit front and centre. We focused on three key priorities:
- Investing in Ireland’s Infrastructure
- Growing Ireland’s Businesses
- Investing in Ireland’s Human Capital
Recommendations in our submission included increased infrastructure funding, improvements to Irish tax competitiveness, and support for affordable childcare to boost female workforce participation.
The Chamber welcomed many of the features of Budget 2019 as being consistent with our recommendations, but also expressed concern that the Government has not shown more ambition for indigenous enterprise and the Irish SME sector.
