This morning’s briefing by the American Chamber of Commerce Ireland, led by CEO Mark Redmond and Carin Bryans Senior Country Officer, JPMorgan Ireland introduced some fascinating research in the “US-Ireland Business 2019” Report
Talent featured largely in both the report’s findings and the discussions this morning.
AmCham measured the top priorities of its members and found them to be:
1. Developing, rewarding & attracting Talent
2. Access to residential accommodation
3. Physical & Digital Infrastructure
4. Enhancing the competitiveness of investment incentives
5. Encouraging innovation and controlling the cost-base
Notably, Brexit did not feature in the top five areas of concerns for the member organisations within the American Chamber of Commerce.
The fact that the US-Ireland economic exchange is a truly two-way business relationship stood out and is highlighted with the figures they generated in this fascinating report. Ireland is the ninth largest investor country into the US globally.
