The European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the European Commission have released a review of Ireland's efforts to emerge from its rescue programme, saying the country is meeting goals and making progress in repairing banks and public finances. The troika notes that Ireland will need to tap bond markets to fund itself next year. "Strong investor interest reflects growing international confidence in Ireland's steadfast policy implementation and improvements in the sovereign's debt service outlook stemming from recent European decisions," according to the report.
