Government push to boost Ireland’s bioeconomy

The government is seeking views on a draft national policy to scale up Ireland’s developing bioeconomy.

The Department of the Taoiseach released the discussion document, a reflection of how seriously the government is treating the initiative, released on 28 July. It says it wants views on how to grow Ireland’s existing bioeconomy and exploit emerging areas that have the potential for future growth.
