A special cabinet meeting devoted to jobs will be held later this month.
Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the cabinet meeting would discuss the draft of the 2015 Action Plan for Jobs.
Mr Kenny said he was keen to create enough jobs for all of our emigrants to come back home if they wished to, and to extend the recovery being felt in the cities to all parts of the country.
"I'd like to think we can spread the benefits (through) broadband communications and infrastructure," he said.
"I'd like to think we can bring back as many as we can of those who want to come home."
