Tourism is Ireland’s largest indigenous industry employing 1 in 9 nationally and providing regional balance and economic activity. In its pre-budget submission the Irish Tourism Industry Confederation (ITIC) outlines the measures needed to support the tourism sector, build on recent successes, and mitigate against Brexit pressures.
ITIC argues that Minister Paschal Donohoe TD in his Budget on October 9th needs to ensure Ireland remains competitive and that, as a state, we invest productively. Maintaining the 9% Vat rate for tourism, keeping business costs in check, restoring current tourism budgets, and providing adequate capital investment are some of the key recommendations within ITIC’s pre-budget submission.
