In 2016 the number of Irish jobs in IDA-supported companies exceeded 200,000, more even than during the Celtic Tiger period. The figures prove how critically important foreign direct investment has become to the Irish economy today, and how seriously we should take threats to our attractiveness as a location for foreign investors.
