IEA submission: July Stimulus Package

The Irish Exporters Association welcomes the commitment made in the Programme for Government to come forward with a July Stimulus Package that will rebuild the economy, get people back to work and help reopen businesses that have had to close or limit their activities in order to support public health.

On behalf of the Irish exporting community, we call on the Government to take account of the proposals in this submission that will assist Irish exporter’s ability to lead an economic recovery, which we have done in the past. Exporters have played a fundamental role in economic crises of the past and this is no different. The establishment of a State backed Export Credit scheme, access to liquidity and the continuation of the Temporary Wage Subsidy scheme are just some of the measures that the IEA would like the Government to address.

Uncertainty is the overriding issue for members of the Irish Exporters Association. The July Stimulus Package must aim to bridge the gap of uncertainty as much as possible, allowing businesses to continue to operate and be prepared for all eventualities.
