Ireland has made remarkable progress in the past seven years to recover from the severe economic blow it suffered after the banking crisis and the property crash. Like Luxembourg, Ireland is a small open economy at the mercy of global events but now, just as the recovery was underway, turmoil in our nearest neighbour after the Brexit vote, on top of a sluggish global economy, have created fresh headwinds. Irish Minister of State Eoghan Murphy will review the progress made to date and the challenges ahead.
