Taoiseach | Addressing and implementing actions proposed by the National Competitiveness and Productivity Council

To ask the Taoiseach the progress to date in addressing and/or implementing actions proposed by the National Competitiveness and Productivity Council, in the context of Ireland’s Competitiveness Challenge 2022.
                                                                                          – Bernard J. Durkan.


A Cheann Comhairle, I propose to take Questions 8 to 13 together.

The National Competitiveness and Productivity Council published its annual Competitiveness Challenge report in September 2022. This makes recommendations to the Government across a range of policy areas.

On 29 November 2022, the Government published a formal response to the council’s recommendations. This is the third year in which a formal response was issued by the Government to the Competitiveness Challenge report. This response was co-ordinated by the Department of the Taoiseach, drawing together material from relevant Departments.

The council outlined a set of twenty priority actions or recommendations across a broad set of areas for Government consideration. These areas include boosting productivity, enhancing the labour market, supporting infrastructure investment, and managing business costs.

The Government welcomed the focus of the council on the priority areas outlined and agreed on their relevance to Ireland’s continued competitiveness.
