In advance of the CEO Forum attendees were asked their views on the future of Ireland’s economy and their overall business sentiment towards jobs and growth.
Findings of the survey, undertaken by Enterprise Ireland and Deloitte, will be presented at this year’s CEO Forum, to be held in Dublin Castle on Thursday October 22.
Some 93% of approximately 200 respondents to a new survey of Irish companies say they intend to expand their businesses over the next year.
The event will see over 300 CEOs listen to key note addresses from Tommy Breen, CEO, DCC plc, Ciaran Murray, CEO, ICON plc, & Domhnal Slattery, CEO, Avolon, as well as other speakers and panellists including Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, who will address the conference on the impact of the Action Plan for Jobs.
The CEO Forum survey findings also revealed that 74% of business leaders believe the Central Bank or Irish Government should not intervene to slow Ireland’s strong economic growth rate, with Ireland currently expected to be the fastest growing economy in the European Union according to the European Commission’s autumn economic forecast.
