The National Economic and Social Council (NESC) - Ireland was established in 1973 and advises the Taoiseach (Prime Minister) on strategic issues for Ireland’s economic and social development. The members of the Council are appointed by the Taoiseach, for a three year term. These members are representatives of business and employers’ organisations, trade unions, agricultural and farming organisations, community and voluntary organisations, and environmental organisations; as well as heads of Government departments and independent experts. The make-up of the NESC Council means that it plays an important and unique role in bringing different perspectives from civil society together with Government.
