“Ireland’s value proposition is based on offering investors: a safe and stable investment location with access to an EU market, an educated and skilled workforce and an attractive environment where people want to live and work, a competitive, consistent and transparent corporate tax regime and an excellent return on investment.

"However, we must not be complacent. The investor landscape is changing constantly and Ireland has to remain vigilant about our competitiveness in order to ensure that this country remains an attractive place to invest.  

"Winning investments is a very competitive business - these investments do not fall into our laps, they will have to be won against stiff international competition. A continuation of pro-enterprise policies is a pre-requisite to continue to win these investments,” concluded Martin Shanahan
