Department of An Taoiseach
The Economic Policy Unit is part of the Economic Division of my Department. The Unit supports me, as Taoiseach, in delivering sustainable and balanced economic growth and in advancing the Government’s economic priorities, including through supporting the Cabinet Committee on Economic Recovery and Investment, and related Senior Officials Groups, and the Cabinet Committee Sub-Group on Insurance Reform.
The Unit advises me on significant national economic policy areas and issues including inflation, public finances, pensions, labour market reform, enterprise policy, insurance, and sectors including manufacturing, pharma, retail and hospitality. The Unit also provides me with briefing and speech material on economic and related policy issues.
The Unit coordinates Ireland’s participation in the European Semester process, including preparing the National Reform Programme, and is also responsible for liaison with the Central Statistics Office.
