Review of Industrial and Enterprise Policy in Small Advanced Economies and Implications for Irish Enterprise Policy

This paper, prepared for the Department of Enterprise, Trade and Employment as part of its work on the White Paper on Enterprise 2022-2030, provides an analysis of enterprise and industrial policy developments in other small advanced economies in the context of a disruptively changing global economic and political environment.

It was commissioned to provide a basis for identifying medium-term policy priorities for Ireland. The paper identified factors that would influence success in terms of developing an Irish enterprise sector that provides sustainable, inclusive and resilient growth.


Our vision is for Irish-based enterprise to succeed through competitive advantage founded on sustainability, innovation and productivity, delivering rewarding jobs and livelihoods.
