In its Pre-Budget 2022, submission to Government, entitled ‘Next Century Ireland, the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland (AmCham) sets out its recommendations for retaining and attracting inward investment. AmCham believes the competition for investment internationally will be intense in the coming period. Competitor countries are responding by continuously improving their offering to inward investment and Ireland needs to be agile and proactive. To maximise this opportunity, smart policy decisions need to be made quickly under the themes of People, Place and Impact because of the pressures of the pandemic, corporate tax reform and the climate crisis.
he American Chamber of Commerce Ireland welcomed the progress made today by the G7 to back a minimum global corporation tax rate. The American Chamber believes such a decision will bring tax certainty to the multi-national sector, which is a welcome step forward. The American Chamber concurs with the Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe’s comments that a sustainable, ambitious and equitable agreement is in everyone’s interest, and that any agreement would have to meet the needs of both small and large countries.
AmCham has launched a major Report called “Building Bridges Better”. The Report’s title is inspired by President Biden’s “Build Back Better” campaign.
In this Report we bring together compelling evidence and case studies that demonstrate why Ireland is such a trusted business partner of the United States – and that it is a two-way partnership built on talent, innovation and shared values.

Welcoming the plan, Mark Redmond, American Chamber CEO said:
“The future of work is changing for many companies. For some, it will look like a hybrid model where a person’s working week contains the flexibility to work-from-home anywhere in Ireland as well as collaborating and communicating with team members at the office as needed. For others depending on role and sector particularly those in the advanced manufacturing sector, presence in the workplace will remain critical.

The report makes a number of recommendations including key technologies Ireland should focus on, coordinating funding and governance, and meeting the talent pipeline requirements that will ensure Ireland is a world class manufacturing and technology leader for the coming decades.
