Murphy welcomes Oireachtas report on all-Ireland economy

28 January, 2016 - by Conor Murphy


Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has welcomed an Oireachtas committee report recommending economic harmonisation across Ireland. 

Mr Murphy, who was in Dublin for the launch of the report, said; 

"This report from the Oireachtas Committee for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, highlights what Sinn Féin has always said - that an all-Ireland economy is in the best interests of everyone north and south. 

"It makes no sense on a small island to have separate tax regimes, legal systems, economic agencies and investment policies. 

"Instead of having competing economic systems and strategies, harmonising policies on an all-Ireland basis is essential for creating a successful economy. 

"This report from the Oireachtas committee provides a roadmap to creating an island-wide economy which would benefit everyone. 

"I welcome its proposals for a single economic agency for Ireland north and south as well as creating an integrated approach to investment and economic policy. 

"Its proposals to establish a border development zone and upgrade infrastructure across the island will also advance the growth and development of the all-Ireland economy."
