    Ireland’s economic prosperity is inextricably linked to how competitive we are internationally. As a small open economy, relative cost competitiveness is a significant determinant of Irish competitiveness, and ultimately economic growth, employment and our standard of living. The Council has just published its latest report the Costs of Doing Business in Ireland 2018 which  benchmarks the main costs facing enterprises relative to a range of OECD countries. It focuses on the costs that are largely domestically determined such as labour, property, transport, utility, credit and financial, and business services.

    A Competitiveness Bulletin summarising key facets of Ireland's cost competitiveness performance is available here
