An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar attended the opening of Amazon’s New Building on Burlington Road in Dublin. The US company announced that up to 1,000 new high tech jobs are to be created in Dublin over the next two years. 

Welcoming the announcement, An Taoiseach said:

We believe the advent of cloud computing, matched with our investment in high speed broadband, will bring about the next step change in how businesses operate.
Our priority in Government is to facilitate an environment where businesses can stay competitive and new jobs created in the businesses of tomorrow.

We are approaching full employment, so our emphasis now is on good jobs, jobs that pay the bills so people can aspire to home ownership and have pensions so they can plan for the future.

Your announcement today of 1,000 new highly skilled full time jobs are exactly the kind of jobs we are looking for.
