Irish Independent: Finding new business the biggest concern for firms


Two in five Irish firms say generating new business in the current climate is their main concern this year. This is according to a survey of more than 250 businesses from the Association of Compliance Officers of Ireland (ACOI).

Michael Kavanagh, chief executive of ACOI, said that for businesses things are not getting any easier in either regard. “How to tackle these issues under the continuing spectre of Covid-19 is fraught with difficulties, but it is all our hope that as the year plays out, Government supports, coupled with greater economic certainty and stability, might assist these organisations to rise to and overcome these challenges” Mr Kavanagh said.
