Here we analyze the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats that Ireland has to make business in this country
Ireland is a well-established parliamentary democracy with strong political institutions.
Political stability has been much improved following the emergence of a power-sharing government in Northern Ireland, which appears to be making steady progress in trying to end over 25 years of secessionist violence and unrest.
Ireland has a highly educated and dynamic workforce. Measured by value added per person employed per year, the country has the second highest labour productivity in the world, after the United States.
Ireland's public sector is smaller than the majority of its European counterparts, which is important given the difficult fiscal position the country is currently in.
Ireland's shaky fiscal situation opened its policy-making process up to increased interference from the EU and reduced political freedom for its politicians, due originally to the terms of the EU85bn bailout exited in 2014 and to the country's ongoing membership of the eurozone currency union.
Due to its membership of the eurozone currency union, Ireland lacks having an independent monetary policy and its own currency, removing useful tools for the central bank to try and drive growth and keep prices in check.
The country must undergo painful internal adjustments to meet the terms of its IMF/EU loans, which is likely to weigh on growth for the next few years.
The collapse of the Irish property bubble has presented the country with an opportunity to develop a more diversified economy, transferring workers out of the construction sectors and into more sustainable areas.
The Fine Gael/Labour coalition enjoys a strong mandate for the implementation of fiscal austerity measures, and holds over 64% of the seats in the Dáil Éireann (lower house).
There is scope for the privatisation of state assets as the government seeks to raise funds to reduce its hefty debt load.
Growing dissatisfaction with austerity could lead the coalition to turn away from austerity in a bid to gain votes in the run up to the parliamentary elections planned for 2016, which would weigh on investor perceptions of Ireland's sovereign credit risk profile.
Despite the government's stringent commitment to fiscal austerity, Ireland's debt dynamics remain unstable, with the ratio of debt-to-GDP above 120%.
The Pharmaceutical industry, which accounts for over 50% of the value of all Irish exports, is becoming increasingly exposed to competition from major generics abroad, as their patents end and governments around the world seek to reduce healthcare costs.
Dublin Population: 1,110,627 it is considered among the top 30 cities in the world .
Cork Population: 198,582 known for its heavy industries, Cork has now transformed to a city that is equipped with great IT companies and chemical plants
Limerik Population: 91,454
Ireland is the third largest island in Europe and boasts the 2nd highest GDP per capita in the EU
Other white 7.5%, Asian 1.3%, Black 1.1%, Mixed 1.1%, Unspecified 1.6% (2006)
Best cities in Ireland
Irish Gaelic is recognised as the first
official language of the Republic of Ireland.
The other official language,
which is more commonly used, is English.
Around 30% of the 3.5m population
are able to speak Irish, and 5% use it regularly.
Although political risk in Ireland is generally quite low, the country's severe economic downturn has increased the propensity for social unrest and dissatisfaction with the political elite.
The Real GDP growth forecast based upon the view that consumption should finally begin a recovery. We believe labour market conditions should improve modestly, as steady export growth begins translating into higher wages and lower unemployment, while stabilising house prices provide a boost to consumers' net wealth and willingness to spend. Nevertheless, the recovery is likely to be a slow and painful one, with any improvements in living standards for citizens taken against a low base, and real incomes likely to remain well-below pre-crisis peaks for some time to come. Ireland's score of 61.7 (out of 100) in our short-term economic risk ratings reflects these issues, and places the country in 57th place out of 175 countries in our proprietary global risk rankings, below Iceland.
