Speaking today the Minister said...

I would like to thank all those who took the time to make suggestions on how to get viable businesses seeking credit. The level and quality of the responses within such a short time frame showed how important this initiative is to Irish businesses. My Department now has a list of suggestions that we can work with to encourage SMEs to apply for credit.

The Minister took this opportunity to invite the public to comment on the published list with a view to improving and refining them. He stressed that his Department will be working on the assessment of the suggestions at the same time.
