Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal Alan Farrell hosted a Business Breakfast Briefing with Minister for Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, in Swords today (Friday) to discuss how the Action Plan for Jobs can support small and medium businesses in Fingal.
“Business owners, entrepreneurs and managers in Fingal attended this morning’s briefing which took place in The Carnegie Court Hotel, Swords. I want to encourage Small and Medium Businesses in the area to learn how they could benefit from these actions which set out to minimise red tape, reduce employment costs, and encourage start-ups and expansion by making the process less costly and less daunting.
“This Government has, through its Action Plan for Jobs, announced almost 300 actions contained in the Action Plan for Jobs this year and 249 actions in 2012 aimed at stimulating growth and job creation.
“The briefing was a unique opportunity for business people in this community to hear directly from Minister Bruton, and to ask questions about how these actions can reduce costs, promote growth and create jobs in their own business, and in Fingal.
“The annual increase in employment shows 3,000 additional jobs being created every month. We now have 33,800 more people at work than was the case in June 2012; an annual increase of 1.8%.Since coming to office, this Government has made the unemployment crisis its number one priority.
