8/9/15-The OECD Economic Survey of Ireland, to be published on Tuesday 15 September, assesses the policies underpinning the country’s robust, broad-based economic recovery, as well as the opportunity to resolve lasting legacies of the global economic crisis. The Survey discusses the need for additional efforts to achieve fiscal sustainability and financial stability, and suggests further structural reforms to create jobs, reduce inequality, make the most of migration, boost productivity and ensure that the recovery continues.
OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria will present the Survey on 15 September in Dublin with Ireland’s Finance Minister Michael Noonanduring a press conference starting at 10:00 local time (11:00 Paris) at the Press Centre, Department of the Taoiseach (Government Buildings, Upper Merrion Street, Dublin 2).
The Survey will be available to registered journalists on the OECD's password-protected website at 10:00 GMT for immediate release.
An Overview of the Economic Survey, with the main conclusions, will be freely accessible on the OECD’s web site at: http://oecd.org/ireland/economic-survey-ireland.htm. You are invited to include this Internet link in reports on the Survey.
