Over the course of the two days of @g7  meetings in London discussions are also taking place on key issues including climate and nature; health finance; support for lower income countries and international taxation #G7UK 

Good news that Scope rating agency has upgraded Ireland's long-term currency rating to AA- and assesses the outlook as stable. We have a long-term A+ rating or higher from all major ratings agencies as well as a stable outlook. Our sensible policies over recent yrs are paying off

I’ll be joining @bryansixone  on the s @RTENewsAtOneortly  to discuss the Government’s National Economic Recovery Plan launched today #ThePathAhead 

I note the joint position by #G7  finance ministers on international corporate taxation. It is in everyone’s interest to achieve a sustainable, ambitious and equitable agreement on the international tax architecture. (1/2)

I look forward now to engaging in the discussions at @OECD  . There are 139 countries at the table, and any agreement will have to meet the needs of small and large countries, developed and developing. (2/2)

I’ll be talking to @BreakfastNT ⁩ and @morningireland ⁩ just after 8am about the G7 meetings, international corporation tax, the NI protocol and remote working.

The #Eurogroup  is meeting this afternoon. We’ll have important discussions on #BankingUnion , debt relief for Greece and progress of Bulgaria and Croatia on their path to the #euro 

Today for the first time I chaired the #ESM  annual meeting of Governors. We are at an important point in the development of the ESM. The treaty reform will strengthen our Economic and Monetary Union and will contribute to supporting the recovery.

Very significant agreement reached in #Eurogroup . Support available for governments, employers and citizens. It took a few hours to agree, but only because this really matters. Very important step forward.

I’m on the @Luas  on way to work. Big increase in number of passengers wearing face masks. But still not everyone. Please do, we need to stay safe. @ronan_glynn  making the risks clear re travel and safety.

The most unusual evening before #StPatricksDay . But, a greening that did go ahead.
