Tanaiste launches new Enterprise White Paper

13 December 2022 

The Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar TD and Ministers of State Dara Calleary TD and Damien English TD, have launched the White Paper on Enterprise which was approved by government. 

Following a review of enterprise policy launched earlier this year, which involved public consultation and engagement of an international advisory panel of experts, the white paper sets out the government’s enterprise priorities in the period to 2030. 

The result of this consultation is a plan of adaption rather than a major departure from the proven and consistent approach we have pursued to date, an evolution rather than revolution in Ireland’s enterprise policy.  

The white paper sets out an ambitious vision for Ireland’s enterprise policy, to protect Ireland’s strong economic position, and respond to challenges and opportunities that have emerged as a result of the pandemic, wider economic and geo-political developments, digitalisation and an increased urgency to decarbonise industry. It provides for a sustainable, innovative and high-productivity economy, with rewarding jobs and livelihoods in the period ahead.
