I propose to take Questions Nos. 153 and 154 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 in companies supported by the agency and 18,846 new jobs created. The tables below present the figures for the following:

- The number of EI supported jobs by county and in the case of Dublin by Dublin city, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal and south Dublin in each of the years 2016 to 2018

- The number of EI clients by county and in the case of Dublin by Dublin city, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal and south Dublin in each of the years 2016 to 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.
