Cork: Cork Chamber president Ger O’Mahoney wants the Government to establish a Business Leaders’ Council to act as a consultative body to the Government.
This council, consisting of 10 of Ireland’s business leaders, would enable business to make a major contribution to solving the country’s economic challenges, according to Mr O’Mahoney.
“It is about time that we confronted the taboo of public sector reform in a realistic fashion,” he added.
“We all know that the size and cost of the public sector in Ireland is not fit for purpose, yet there is no realistic idea of what the potential savings under the Croke Park agreement could be, as specific targets and firm timelines have not been set, with no consequences if targets are not achieved. You can’t manage what you don’t measure.”
