Voting Yes will position Ireland to remain a strong partner in the important US–Europe economic relationship, American Chamber of Commerce Ireland president Peter O’Neill said yesterday.

He was speaking as the chamber published a new report on the US–Europe economic relationship.

“We want to ensure that Ireland remains best positioned to capitalise on the continued investment in Europe by US companies,” Mr O’Neill said.

US Chamber of Commerce president and chief executive Thomas Donohue, who attended the launch, said, “This new study makes a persuasive case for why Europe remains a good place to invest. This partnership benefits both parties. Now we must inject more ambition into our economic partnership.”
