OECD Digitisation if the Economy

Our initial observations with respect to OECD’s Public Consultation Addressing the Tax Challenges of the Digitalisation of the Global Economy

Pre-Budget Submission

AmCham's Pre Budget 2020 submission highlights the importance of the country’s competitiveness, particularly in light of challenge such as Brexit, trade tensions and the potential slowdown in the global economy.  The American Chamber believes it is more important than ever for Government to present a confident message to the world that the country is open for business, particularly at a time when there is a global news focus on Brexit which includes potential negative impacts on Ireland.   In this context, the St Patrick’s week trade missions and the Global Ireland programme will be particularly important next year.
