Government 'set to announce €2bn stimulus package'

The Government is expected to announce a €2bn stimulus package this week.

According to reports in both the Sunday Business Post and the Sunday Independent, the Public Expenditure and Reform Minister Brendan Howlin intends to announce a series of capital expenditure projects this week in the wake of the preliminary agreement reached on bank debt at a recent EU summit.

Projects include the National Children's Hospital and a number of primary healthcare centres.
