• The IDA says the outlook for the next 24 months looks very challenging. 

    132 investments have been won for far this year with the combined employment potential of 9600. 

    53 were new investors and 44 expansions from existing companies.

    Almost half of the projects won were for regional locations.

    The agency says existing foreign direct investment is resilient but not immune to the impact of the pandemic and that flows of investment continue but at a slower rate.
