Why Vote Yes:A Yes vote is another important step on the road to economic recovery.
A Yes vote, above all else provides Stability. Stability in terms of the nation's finances; on Ireland's ongoing role as a committed member of the Eurozone and in terms of our commitment to following a defined path to recovery. This stability is a prerequisite for global corporations making strategic investment decisions and will help protect Ireland's reputation as the preferred gateway to the European market for overseas investors.
Ireland is the gateway to Europe for over 600 US businesses. These companies have invested $190 billion here and provide valuable employment to 100,000 people.
It is vital that we maintain international confidence in Ireland's position at the heart of Europe and our market access to 500 million people.
