In response, Barry Andrews said 'I am delighted to have the opportunity to serve as the Director General of the IIEA, Ireland's leading policy think tank, and to work closely with the Chair, Board and staff to further enhance the IIEA as a forum for the promotion of high quality political and public debate on issues of central importance to Ireland's future'.
Thanking outgoing DG Tom Arnold, Ruairi Quinn said 'Tom has made a major contribution to the IIEA since he assumed this position, building on his unique range of relationships at Irish, European and international level. We wish him well in his future endeavours'.
