An Taoiseach, meeting with the IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde
This morning an Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar welcomed the IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde to Government Buildings.
An Taoiseach and the Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe joined Christine Lagarde in issuing a press statement.
An Taoiseach remarked:
Madame Lagarde & the IMF are among the strongest and most vocal champions of the open rules-based multilateral order which underpins modern economic prosperity. A view we in Ireland strongly share based on free trade and free markets. This month, the Government will approve the General Scheme of Gender Pay Gap Bill which will promote transparency on wage levels – initially for large employers, 250+ employees, but extending over time to smaller employers.
