PWC, together with Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce, will host their annual lunch briefing on Wednesday 13 October 2016 in Hotel Kilkenny at 12.30 pm, where the 2017 Budget will be reviewed and analysed by PWC's South East tax partner Ronan Furlong and Economist Jim Power. The upcoming Budget is an opportunity for Ireland to demonstrate to onlookers at home and abroad that we are committed to progressive economic, fiscal and social policies. In the words of the Minister for Finance, Michael Noonan, “future growth will increasingly depend on the opportunities we create for ourselves”. This briefing will consider whether the Minister has taken effective steps to create the opportunities needed to generate meaningful growth. To reserve a place phone the Chamber at 775 2767 or email email@example.com Cost is €10 for Chamber members, €15 for non-members.
