SFA welcomes Government’s capital spending plan
  • Strategic investment required for economy to continue to grow

Reacting to the announcement of the Government’s capital spending plan, Patricia Callan, Director of the Small Firms Association (SFA), commented: “The SFA welcomes the Government’s commitment to investing in Ireland’s future. Strategic planning and investment are needed to improve the business environment, ensure that businesses and citizens around the country benefit from the economic recovery, and assist with the attraction of Foreign Direct Investment and talent.”

“Ireland’s investment spend is currently the third lowest in the EU even though Ireland has the region’s fastest growing population. Capital expenditure has made up over 70% of total expenditure cuts since 2008. Capital investment is the key to avoiding infrastructure bottlenecks arising from Ireland’s current and future demographics,” Callan continued.
