  • FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “‘We want to find an agreement’ on Biden corporate tax goal: Irish finance minister” – below is their description.

    Ireland’s Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe tells FRANCE 24 his government wants to find an agreement on a global corporate tax rate, an initiative spearheaded by US President Joe Biden. Earlier this week, he had said that Ireland would oppose much of the European Commission’s plan for a more unified corporate tax regime across the EU. “I would make the case that tax competition – but within certain boundaries – is part of how smaller and medium-sized countries can be competitive,” the minister explained.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
