paring now for Tomorrow's Economy

The Department of the Taoiseach and the Department of Business, Enterprise and
Innovation are leading a whole of Government effort to develop the Future Jobs Initiative.

The Future Jobs Initiative aims to ensure that the Irish economy is well positioned to adapt and prosper in the future. This new economic
approach is based on increased productivity, skills, talent and innovation.

The Future Jobs Initiative will be organised around five pillars:

  • improving productivity of SMEs
  • increasing labour market participation
  • innovation
  • skills and talent
  • the low carbon and digital economies

This will drive development as a resilient, innovative, and globally connected economy, capable of coping with technological and other transformational changes ahead.

The Future Jobs Summit took place this week which consulted on emerging programmes of actions with a broad range of stakeholders before Future Jobs 2019 is launched.
