Ireland's Competitiveness Challenge 2022

Ireland’s Competitiveness Challenge 2022 identifies the key competitiveness and productivity challenges facing the Irish economy and makes recommendations to Government on how to address them.

The Challenge 2022 report identifies four broad medium and long-term strategic challenges and outlines 20 tangible, actionable policy recommendations to the Government aimed at enhancing Ireland’s competitiveness and productivity performance. The NCPC believe these recommendations will build towards a sustainable and inclusive economy, underpinned by broad based productivity growth, an adaptable and highly skilled workforce, adequate physical and social infrastructure, and manageable business costs. 

The four key challenges identified are to: 

  • boost broad based productivity growth
  • enhance labour market performance
  • support infrastructure investment for a better future
  • manage the costs of doing business

Further information on the report, including the accompanying press release is available on the NCPC website: NCPC > Ireland's Competitiveness Challenge 2022
