IBEC’s constructive input on potential of an all-Ireland economy welcome – Rose Conway-Walsh TD

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Public Expenditure and Reform, Rose Conway-Walsh has welcomed the contribution from Ireland’s largest lobby & business representative group, IBEC at an Oireachtas Committee under the theme of ‘Perspectives on Constitutional Change’.
 
Speaking after the Committee, Teachta Conway-Walsh said:
 
“The Oireachtas Good Friday Agreement Committee is holding a series of meetings to look at all aspects of society that would be impacted by a future referendum on Irish Unity.
 
“IBEC were invited in to discuss the economic potential and challenges of constitutional change.
 
“IBEC’s presentation, given by Michael D’Arcy and Fergal O’Brien on the economic opportunities of an integrated all-Ireland, was positive and set out many practical sets to deepen cooperation and economic integration in advance of any future border poll.
 
“IBEC’s contribution to the debate was of a high standard and built on the paper released to mark the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Good Friday Agreement ‘Peace and Prosperity, The Economic and Social Benefits of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement.
 
“I welcome IBEC’s ongoing work to develop a ‘macroeconomic model’ for the north’s economy which would provide much-needed data to improve the north’s economy within an all-Ireland setting.
 
“We must continue to be forward looking in the context of potential constitutional change and at the same time take all practical sets that we can today to ensure strong economic growth across the Island as a whole.”
