The Republic of Ireland is on track to exit its international bailout programme by December, Prime Minister Enda Kenny says. He told the Fine Gael party conference in Limerick that although “fragile times” lay ahead, “the economic emergency will be over”. The €85 billion (£73bn) bailout was forced on the country after its biggest banks collapsed in 2010. Ireland sought help after a property crash left its banks under-capitalized.

“Tonight I can confirm that Ireland is on track to exit the EU/IMF bailout on 15 December. And we won’t go back,” said Kenny.

“It won’t mean that our financial troubles are over. Yes, there are still fragile times ahead. There’s still a long way to go. But at last, the era of the bailout will be no more. The economic emergency will be over.”

Addressing those most affected by the years of austerity, the Taoiseach (prime minister) said their “huge sacrifice” was paying off.

He cautioned that the national budget due to be unveiled on Tuesday would be “tough”, with another €2.5bn (£2bn) in tax rises and spending cuts.

Međutim, kazao je kako će napustiti Irsku s deficitom 4.8% sljedeće godine, daleko ispred željenog 5.1% cilja.

Dodao je kako će vlada do kraja ove godine objaviti novu srednjoročnu gospodarsku strategiju.

Ako Irska napusti program do prosinca, to će biti prva od četiri zemlje koje je evrozona spasila kako bi se oslobodila hitne pomoći.

Eurozona je također spasila Portugal, Cipar i Grčku.

In July, ratings agency Standard & Poor’s upgraded its credit outlook for the Republic of Ireland from stable to positive, arguing that the country’s debts were falling faster than expected.

In April, eurozone finance ministers rewarded the country’s efforts by giving Ireland more time to repay its bailout loans.
