Ibec has called for decisive action and targeted measures to address Brexit-related economic risks, in Budget 2018.
The group that represents Irish business, has suggested that comprehensive supports to help companies trade through any period of disruption, adapt and succeed into the future is required.
It also noted that Ireland's competitiveness must be safeguarded and decisions that would adversely impact labour and other business costs must be avoided.
“Negotiations have yet to provide any clarity as to what future EU-UK relations will look like." Gerard Brady Ibec Head of Tax and Fiscal Policy said.
"While we must work to ensure a close, positive relationship into the future, the risk of a divisive divorce is very real. We cannot afford to simply wait to see what happens."
Brady said that the government must introduce a range of measures to ensure the economy is prepared for all eventualities.
