Troika visit Dublin for inspection
A 10- day visit from troika representatives begins in Dublin today to review the progress Ireland has made on its bailout programme.
Analysts expect that the current inspection will ensure the country’s financial priorities are centred around reaching its EU targets before next year’s budget is released.
This month’s visit is expected to be the last time the EU/IMF/ECB group analyse the books of the Irish government as it gears up to standalone without additional bailout funding.
Ireland has utilised a large portion of the €67bn that was allocated in the bailout programme and the remaining funds should be exhausted by the end of the year.
