Spotlight on Ireland:

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic, western Europe. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel. Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. Ireland is a small, modern, trade-dependent economy. The greatest risks to the economy are the UK’s departure from the European Union (“Brexit”) in March 2019, possible changes to international taxation policies that could affect Ireland’s revenues, and global trade pressures.

  • Capital: Dublin
  • Official language: English (official, the language generally used), Irish (Gaelic or Gaeilge) (official, spoken by approximately 40% of the population; mainly spoken in areas along Ireland’s western coast known as gaeltachta, which are officially recognized regions where Irish is the predominant language). In general, employment contracts are written in English.
  • Population: 5.224.884 (July 2021).
  • Labor force: 2.289 million (2020).
  • Local currency: Euro (EUR). Ireland was among the initial group of 12 EU nations that began circulating the euro on 1 January 2002.
  • Minimum statutory salary: The minimum wage increased to €10.20 per hour from January 1st 2021. The national minimum wage applies to full-time, part-time, temporary and casual employees. Employees must be given pay-slips showing their wages and any deductions made. Sectoral employment orders (SEOs) and registered employment agreements (REAs) set out minimum wages in certain sectors that differ to the national minimum wage. The Payment of Wages Act 1991 gives all employees a right to a pay slip which will show the gross wage and details of all deductions made by his or her employer.
  • Salary currency: There is no requirement under the legislation as to the currency in which wages must be paid. However, it is generally assumed that wages will be paid in the currency of the jurisdiction, in this case in Euro.
  • Most developing industries: Agriculture remains a key sector as the government seeks to strengthen its role in the economy by modernizing it and transforming the food processing industries (beef, dairy, potatoes, barley, wheat, pig, sheep and cereals). Ireland’s recent industrial development was achieved through a deliberate policy of promoting advanced export-oriented enterprises, and partly through attractive offers for investors.Textiles, chemicals and electronics have performed particularly well. Banking and finance have grown to such an extent that Dublin counts now as an important international financial centre, while tourism has become an important source of foreign exchange earnings.
  • Trading partners: The top export partners are the United States, Belgium, Germany, the UK, China, Netherlands with such commodities as medical cultures/vaccines, nitrogen compounds, packaged medicines, integrated circuits, scented mixtures. The key countries for impot are the United Kingdom, the United States, Germany, Netherlands, France. Import commodities include aircraft, computers, packaged medicines, refined petroleum, medical cultures/vaccines.
