With 1,000 people a week predicted to emigrate this year alone, Ireland urgently needs Fine Gael’s five point plan to create jobs and growth, Denis Naughten has stated.
He has also outlined how Fine Gael plans will help to both create and protect employment in Athlone and South Roscommon.
“We have seen a total absence of any job creation plan from this Government which has resulted in an entire generation of long-term unemployed,” stated Denis Naughten. “We urgently need a targeted solution. That’s why Fine Gael has launched a five point plan for recovery.
“This plan will see an additional €7 billion invested over the next four years in next generation infrastructures in energy, broadband, forestry, and water. This investment will have a positive impact on business costs and external competitiveness.
“It will give a long-term future to our power stations in Shannonbridge and Lanesboro while also providing a cash crop for local farmers in relation to the growing of bio-mass. The plan will also address the ongoing issues regarding poor water supplies in South Roscommon and will ensure clean, drinkable tap water.”
