Commenting on today’s (25 January 2018) publication of the Cost of Insurance Working Group’s Report on the Cost of Employer and Public Liability Insurance,
Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot said,
“We welcome the recommendations of the Cost of Employer & Public Liability Insurance Report published today. Businesses need to see progress on the reducing cost of insurance as soon as possible.
This is an urgent matter for Irish businesses of all sizes and across all sectors as the cost of insurance has a substantial impact on competitiveness in both domestic and international markets.
Brexit means that businesses are facing significant uncertainty and new challenges. Government needs to seriously address the high cost of doing business in order to support our companies and entrepreneurs through this difficult period, and the cost of insurance has to be a priority.”
