I propose to take Questions Nos. 517 to 519, inclusive, together.

On an annual basis Enterprise Ireland (EI) works with approximately 5,000 manufacturing and internationally traded services companies through the agency’s network of 10 offices in Ireland and 33 international offices.

In 2018, EI client companies reported strong employment performance with 215,207 people employed and 18,846 new jobs created. The tables below present the figures for the following:

- The number of new jobs supported by EI in 2018 by county

- The number of total jobs supported by EI in 2018 by county

- The number of companies supported by EI in 2018 by county

- The number of new companies supported by EI in 2018 by county

- The amount paid to EI companies by county in 2017 and 2018

Support to client companies is tailored to meet the individual needs of each client company in order to equip them to succeed in global markets. Every EI client company is assigned a developmental adviser who works with them to identify areas that can be optimised and improved. These areas are not just addressed through direct financial assistance, but through a wide range of soft supports, such as mentoring and management development programmes. These soft supports are not captured in the following tables.
