In a Eurochambres Economic Survey for 2022, a lack of skilled workers, access to affordable energy, and increasing labour costs are among the main challenges facing businesses across Europe.

As RTE News reports, the European Association, of which Chambers Ireland is a member, represents over 20 million enterprises in Europe through 45 national members and a network of 1700 regional and local Chambers.

It has been conducting these surveys, the largest of its kind in Europe, since 2002.

Covid-19 continues to be a concern for Irish participants in the survey with supply chain disruption cited by 59% of respondents.

Various reports and surveys have pointed to delays in the supply of goods and raw materials as a significant issue for businesses in the manufacturing, services and construction sectors which is resulting in higher input costs.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
