Economic Concentration 2018

Date: 01 August 2018 

National Competitiveness Council publishes bulletin on economic concentration

The NCC has published a Competitiveness Bulletin on economic concentration.

As the Irish economy continues to grow, ensuring our competitiveness remains sustainable takes on even more importance. The Council is concerned that the sustainability of growth could be threatened by our heavy dependence on the performance of a narrow base of firms and economic sectors. At the same time our indigenous exporting base exports a narrow range of products and services, and relies on a small number of export markets. Brexit has exposed how Irish export markets are geographically concentrated and the range of products and services exported has become increasingly narrow.
