Industry experts and the IDA will discuss the importance of the construction sector to attracting and retaining top level FDI to Ireland.

 

Engage in our panel discussion on Housing.  Where we are now and what solutions can the construction industry offer to relieve the housing crisis?  Listen to expert opinion on how we can begin to build again and remove the current blockages being experienced in many of our major cities.
