Taoiseach Enda Kenny has told Ireland's ambassadors that we have to get the country back on track, create jobs and 'wave goodbye to AJ Chopra' and the IMF.
He was addressing the heads of Ireland’s diplomatic service who gathered in the Department of Foreign Affairs today.
And he urged the envoys to work hard at promoting Ireland's image and potential abroad.
He said he wanted Ireland to be ‘’the best country in the world for business by the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising in 2016’’.
And he told the ambassadors their work is valued and they are essential cogs in communicating that Ireland will overcome its challenges.
But Mr Kenny acknowledged that before Ireland could wave Mr Chopra goodbye, a lot of challenges would have to be overcome.
