“We will come through this. And from the ashes of the pandemic, together, we will build a stronger, more resilient Ireland.”
Opening this year’s budget speech with a strong message of solidarity and hope for the Irish people, Minister Paschal Donohoe described Budget 2021 as a bridge to a better future.
In a year where getting it right is more critical than ever, the focus is rightly placed on a suite of expenditure measures covering health, education and business. This is good news for individuals and businesses.
We welcome the Government’s decision to invest in the economy at this critical point and not make significant changes to taxation. Measures to repay borrowings can be taken in future Budgets.
