IDA Ireland’s main objective is to encourage investment into Ireland by foreign-owned companies. It works as a strategic partner and provides consultancy and support services free of charge to help organisations set-up and grow. Our success is measured by the impact of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and IDA-supported companies on the Irish economy.

IDA client companies created just under 19,000 (18,983) jobs on the ground during 2015 across a range of sectors, with every region of Ireland posting net gains in jobs.
