爱尔兰退出欧债救援计划(有声)
2015年10月17日 06:00

Now perhaps it's the luck of the Irish. In a month's time the Republic of Ireland will become the first victim of Europe's debt crisis to exit its bailout programme. It's an achievement many thought might not happen for quite some time. The country suffered the indignity of an international financial rescue when its economy was struck by a housing collapse. So the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank lent Dublin more than $100 billion. In return the country has had to slash public spending, cut wages and lay off workers. So as the economy picks up, light is now appearing at the end of the tunnel. But how has five years of non-stop cuts and tax hikes affected the normally jovial Irish? The BBC's Joe Lynam has been to Dublin to find out.

Mandy and thousands of others haven't seen any impact as yet while Ireland's recovering economy. GDP is rising, so is job creation.

Unemployment is falling, so are government borrowing costs. And that's despite taking 16% of GDP out of the economy since 2008. So the fact that Ireland is growing at all is something of a miracle. Technology is one of the reasons.
