The Action Plan for Jobs is a key element of the Government's policy approach to rebuilding the economy and getting people back to work. Under the Action Plan process, the Government publishes a series of measures which it commits to support job creation and retention each year. The delivery of these measures is monitored on a regular basis and progress on achievement of the actions is published on the Department's website http://www.djei.ie/enterprise/apj.htm.
The 2014 Action Plan for Jobs is currently being developed and will be published early in 2014. We are interested in ideas that could help in improving the environment for businesses to create jobs.
