Written answers (Question to Jobs)

Ireland’s NUTS-II regions are defined as:

- Border, Midland and Western NUTS-II Region and

- Southern and Eastern NUTS-II Region

The BMW Region NUTS II also contains three NUTS III regions:

Border: The counties of Cavan, Donegal, Leitrim, Louth, Monaghan and Sligo.

West: The counties of Galway, Mayo and Roscommon.

Midland: The counties of Laois, Longford, Offaly and Westmeath.

Similarly, the Southern and Eastern NUTS II Region, contains five NUTS III regions:

Mid-East: The counties of Kildare, Meath and Wicklow.

Dublin: The city of Dublin, and the administrative counties of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal and South Dublin.

South-East: The counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, South Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford.

South-West: The counties of Cork and Kerry.

Mid-West: The counties of Clare, Limerick and North Tipperary.

The Forfás Annual Employment Survey reports on the number of jobs gained and lost in the enterprise development agencies. The survey is conducted on an annual basis and aggregated at county level. Details of the number of jobs created, lost and net jobs change in each of the NUTS-II and NUTS III regions in the past six years are set out in the following tabular statements.

There have been significant gains in employment in both Regions over the past six years. Since 2008, IDA clients have employed almost 73,000 new staff across Ireland.

I am pleased to say that employment losses in IDA clients have been falling over the same period from 13,654 in 2008 to 6,296 in 2013.

Under the Action Plan for Jobs 2014, IDA Ireland and Enterprise Ireland are working with my Department to develop a framework for a Regional Enterprise Strategy to better integrate the efforts of enterprise agencies and the other regional stakeholders in building enterprise based on sustainable competitive advantage of the region. This exercise will complement the in-depth analysis of our FDI strategy which is currently being undertaken by Forfás and which will take account of factors such as key trends emerging in FDI best practice internationally, Ireland’s strengths in attracting FDI and any changes to the EU’s State Aid Rules, which will come into effect on 1 July 2014. The results of these two exercises will form the basis of IDA Ireland’s strategy from 2015 onwards.
