Our reputation on up

G8 countries have voted Ireland as the 12th most reputable country in the world. Ireland improved three places from last year's 15th and is ranked ahead of the UK, France, Spain and Portugal.

Citizens in the G8 nations were asked about a range of issues, not just economic factors, but also political, social and cultural issues. "This is a positive step for Ireland to continue to attract foreign investment and acquire new opportunities for sustained economic growth," said Niamh Boyle, managing director of Corporate Reputation.
