Thursday, 31st of October - Heather Humphreys TD, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, and Pat Breen TD, Minister of State for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market, and Data Protection today launched an OECD Review of SME and Entrepreneurship Policy in Ireland and an accompanying roadmap with priority areas for implementation. The OECD was commissioned in March 2018 by Minister Humphreys to undertake the Review, the scale of which has not been seen before in Ireland.
The focus of the Review was to identify policies and strategies to improve Irish SME productivity levels, resilience and the potential for growth and internationalisation. It includes best practice examples from countries with similar challenges to Ireland. The OECD Deputy Secretary General, Ulrik Vestergaard Knudsen, attended the launch.
The OECD’s analysis will form the basis for a new government strategy on SMEs and Entrepreneurship.
