Competition worries replace cash flow woes
New competitors and discounting by existing competitors has replaced cash flow as businesses' primary concern, according to a new survey. The shift came in the last quarter of 2015.
Cross-border trade body Intertrade Ireland, which released the survey, said the result was a sign of a "relatively healthy" market.
"Companies that are in growth mode are characterised by their investment in innovation and exporting to new markets, including the cross-border market on the island," Intertrade's strategy and policy director Aidan Gough said.
