MHC Times Issue 29

13 January 2012

Welcome to the 29th edition of the MH&C Times.

As always, we aim to provide you with articles which are current and relevant. In this issue, we discuss the Irish Government’s policy which may result in the commercialisation of State assets, we follow the success story of the game sector in Ireland, and we look at the changes in Company Law and the next stage for Ireland’s wind energy industry.

Change is now a constant in Europe but much of this change is positive for Ireland.  We officially emerged from recession in June and a number of other strong international endorsements have followed this news. Foreign Direct Investment remains strong and Ireland as a choice of location for social media businesses underscores our reputation as a social media hub for Europe. Accenture selected Dublin for their Global Analytics Innovation Centre while Google recently announced another new data centre and further expansion in Ireland.
