In June 2018, my Department published the Audiovisual Action Plan, an industry-wide 10 year plan which will see an investment of €200m of investment in media production and the audiovisual industry over the 10 years of the plan. This will support the Government’s ambition to enable Ireland to become a global hub for the production of Film, TV drama and animation.
