FINE GAEL GENERAL ELECTION MANIFESTO – SUPPORTING JOBS AND SMEs

Over 135,000 more people are going to work since we launched our Action Plan for Jobs. We plan to add an extra 200,000 jobs by 2020, leading to more people at work than ever before including bringing 70,000 of our family and friends home to work.

We want the recovery into every home across the country. These targets are ambitious, but achievable with the right policies.

If re-elected we will:

  • Support¬†regions¬†with funding and people to develop their own tailored¬†Jobs Plans.

  • Invest ‚ā¨42 billion in infrastructure, shaped by clear regional jobs strategies, to bring unemployment to below 7% in every region of the country.

  • Roll out sectoral¬†growth¬†strategies for¬†food, agriculture, tourism, financial services, aviation, and transport.

  • Provide¬†50,000 apprenticeship and traineeship¬†places to support new and growing sectors of the economy.

  • End¬†tax discrimination¬†against the¬†self-employed.

  • Reduce taxes¬†on start-ups to encourage¬†more entrepreneurship.

  • Protect¬†our¬†12.5% corporation tax¬†rate, which is a cornerstone of our global competitiveness.
