All of the regions in Ireland have potential for economic growth and employment creation. It is critical that we focus on the potential within regions to position them as key contributors to Ireland’s national growth and the creation of employment.

Between June 2015 and January 2016, the Department of Jobs, Enterprise, and Innovation published eight Regional Action Plans for Jobs, aimed at raising employment levels in the regions and facilitating them to achieve their economic potential.

Each plan contains a series of actions with timelines for delivery between 2015-2017, to be delivered through improved collaboration between enterprise agencies and other stakeholders supporting enterprise development in the regions.

On this website you will find each Regional Action Plan, the latest Progress Reports, and up to date news and links on issues related to the initiative.

EACH PLAN WILL BE OVERSEEN AND MONITORED BY A REGIONAL IMPLEMENTATION COMMITTEE, WITH PROGRESS REPORTS PRODUCED EVERY 6 MONTHS
