IDA Ireland is in the process of developing a new five year strategy to succeed its current strategy “Winning FDI 2015 – 2019”. We do so in a strong position. There have been record levels of foreign direct investment into Ireland over the past five years. The ambitious targets set out in the current strategy will be met and, in many cases, have already been well surpassed. In this strategy IDA has placed a particular focus on increasing investment in regional locations and that emphasis is bearing fruit.
