The Government needs to prepare a "prudent" Budget this October that will encourage growth of Irish exports to world markets, the Irish Exporters' Association has said in its pre-Budget submission.
The association said that cost competitiveness must be maintained and improved, while entrepreneurship should also be further encouraged. It said a national hedging strategy for Sterling should also be introduced to offer a discounted exchange rate to companies.
