Written answers (Question to Business)

The following table sets out details on the number of IDA site visits to each county of Ireland in the first three months of 2018.

As I have indicated previously, the IDA continues to highlight the benefits of expanding or locating in all counties of Ireland to its clients, including through site visits to regional areas. It is important to remember, however, that the final decision as to where to invest always rests with the company concerned. It is also the case that site visit activity does not necessarily reflect investment potential, as at least 70% of all new foreign direct investment comes from existing IDA Ireland client companies.
