Cork South Central Fine Gael Deputy Jerry Buttimer has called for local business people to voice their views on what government can do to help them protect existing jobs and to create new jobs directly to the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton TD. Minister Bruton will be taking part in a consultation meeting on Monday 27th February at 3.30pm in the Silver Springs Moran Hotel, Tivoli, Cork.
Deputy Buttimer said “the purpose of the consultation will be to hear the views and ideas of business people on what support they need to protect existing jobs and to create new jobs. We all hear stories of how regulation and bureaucracy delays business expansion, this is a chance for these issues to be highlighted directly to the Minister. In keeping with Minister Bruton’s decision consult on the contents of the Action Plan for Jobs he will also use this meeting to invite ideas for further actions which will support business.
“The Action Plan on Jobs 2012 is a series of actions which are aimed at facilitating the growth and expansion of businesses. It is not just a one-off announcement, it is intended that it will be an on-going series of reforms to support businesses.
“If we are to create a country which fosters business growth and facilitates job creation it is essential that there is dialogue between government and business people. This conversation will help address the problems faced by those people who are trying to create jobs. I would encourage all business people to take part in this consultation process which aims to make it easier to do business in Ireland.”
