I propose to take Questions Nos. 465 to 468, inclusive, together.
Ireland continues to perform very strongly in terms of attracting foreign direct investment, FDI, and encouraging further investment from multinational companies will remain important to our future economic success.
Total employment in the IDA's client companies now stands at over 245,000, with nearly 14,000 net new jobs added in 2019. Every region in Ireland has seen FDI employment gains in recent years. There are now over 138,000 people employed in 724 IDA client companies located outside of Dublin, with 57% of all net new FDI jobs created last year based in regional locations.
The tables provide a breakdown of jobs created by IDA supported companies in each county for 2019 and 2018 and the number of IDA jobs by county and region for 2018 and 2019.
