National Economic Dialogue, June 2017

The National Economic Dialogue will take place in Dublin Castle on 28-29th June 2017.

The opening and plenary sessions of the National Economic Dialogue will be streamed live on this site. Documents related to the event will be published on the site as they become available.

The dialogue will be an opportunity to consider how to make best use of the available resources in the interests of all citizens. The aim is to foster discussion on how to best sustain and strengthen the recovery while taking account of the many competing economic and social priorities within the limited fiscal space. The dialogue is not intended to produce specific budget proposals or recommendations, but should assist participants in preparing their own pre-budget submissions. Representatives of community, voluntary and environmental groups as well as business, unions, research institutes and the academic community will be in attendance. There will be Oireachtas involvement as the members of the Select Committee on Budgetary Oversight will attend and participate in the event.
