The mission chiefs for Ireland from the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund visited Dublin on March 15-16 at the invitation of the Irish authorities. The visit was an opportunity to hear the views of the new government on its economic program from Minister for Finance Michael Noonan and Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin, as well as to meet senior officials. The discussions covered the economic outlook and the financial sector, and are an important input into next month's review mission of the EC, ECB and IMF.
