    Ireland’s Competitiveness Challenge 2020 builds on the Council’s annual benchmarking report - Ireland’s Competitiveness Scorecard 2020 that was published in May. 

    The COVID-19 pandemic presents many challenges for the competitiveness of the Irish economy.

These four challenges areas are to:

    • Support Ireland’s workers and leverage opportunities for upskilling,
    • Address Climate Action in a Competitiveness Context,
    • Invest Strategically in Ireland’s Physical Infrastructure, and
    • Resolve Long-standing Issues.
