Written answers (Question to Jobs)

Details of the total amount of grants paid by IDA Ireland broken down by county in each of the years from 2007 to 2012 inclusive is set out on the tabular statement below. Figures for 2013 will not be available until the IDA Ireland Annual Accounts for 2013 have been signed off by the Comptroller and Auditor General.

Total employment in IDA Ireland client companies now stands at in excess of 166,000 people, the highest level in the history of the Agency. 13,367 new jobs were created in IDA Ireland client companies in 2013. When job losses are taken into account the net increase in employment in IDA Ireland client companies was 7,071 the highest level of job creation in over a decade.

The Action Plan for Jobs 2014 has set a job creation target for IDA Ireland of 13,000 new jobs for the year. One of the three new Disruptive Reforms introduced in the Action Plan for Jobs 2014 is the “Winning Abroad” initiative to be delivered by IDA Ireland. The key objective of the initiative is to deliver an additional 10,000 jobs (6,000 direct and 4,000 indirect) in a five year period, over and above the existing targets in set out in the Action Plan. Government has provided additional funding to IDA Ireland to enable the Agency to engage additional staff in overseas locations to capitalise on opportunities for Ireland to win additional and new forms of FDI.

To date in 2014 there have been 17 IDA announcements with the potential to create over 6,800 jobs.
