315. To ask the Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation the persons or bodies that are active Enterprise Ireland clients employed in County Roscommon; and the persons or bodies that are non-active EI clients in County Roscommon. [42056/19]
Enterprise Ireland (EI) supports companies in urban and rural areas to start, innovate and remain competitive in international markets, now and into the future. EI’s focus for 2019 is to help clients in all regions to build on the strength of their 2018 performance by supporting them to innovate, be competitive and to diversify their global footprint - key attributes required to be resilient to economic shocks, such as those emerging from any kind of Brexit.
In 2018, EI supported companies in Roscommon employed 1,971 people, a 4 per cent increase on 2017. In the period 2015 – 2018, EI paid €2.5 million to client companies based in Roscommon. With regard to the Annual Employment Survey, which captures data about client companies and jobs, it does not report employment figure by company status such as active and non-active. Therefore, it is not possible to break down client companies in Roscommon into either active or inactive.
