Competitiveness

Competitiveness Banner
Dublin Chamber maintains a continuous focus on the general competitiveness of the Dublin Region.  This comprises advocating for increased tax competition vis-à-vis our competitor countries/cities, advocating for increased investment in infrastructure and improved spatial planning. 

The Chamber also advocates on many smaller issues, and is represented on many fora that address different areas of competitiveness, sitting on the Commission for Energy Regulation’s Non-Domestic Water Users Group and the Dublin Regional Skills Forum.
