Minister Eoghan Murphy Publishes IFS2020 Action Plan for 2017
Minister for International Financial Services Eoghan Murphy, published the IFS2020 Action Plan for 2017 on Monday.
The IFS2020 Strategy is a five year Strategy for the development of our International Financial Services Sector. The Strategy was first launched in March 2015 under the previous Government by the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and the then Junior Minister for International Financial Services Simon Harris.
The Strategy has a vision for Ireland to be the recognised global location of choice for specialist International Financial Services. The Strategy has an ambitious target – to increase direct employment in this sector by 10,000 net new jobs, equivalent to an almost 30% increase in employment across the combined IFS portfolios of IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland.
Commenting on the 2017 Action Plan Minister Eoghan Murphy stated: “This year’s Action Plan places a strong focus on Brexit. The Strategy’s dynamic and evolving structures provide the toolkit to react to domestic and international challenges and opportunities arising over the next 12 months and beyond.”
Minister Eoghan Murphy will officially launch the 2017 Action Plan at an event in Iveagh House on Monday evening. This event is one of a number of events taking place in and around Tuesday’s European Financial Forum in Dublin Castle.
