IDA begins two-day investment mission in London and Frankfurt
IDA Ireland has this morning begun a two-day investment mission to London and Frankfurt, where it will target new jobs in the financial services and technology sector.
The mission is being led by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, Richard Bruton, who is accompanied by IDA CEO Martin Shanahan.
The mission will include seven one-on-one meetings with senior decision-makers from both established employers with facilities already in Ireland, as well as potential new-name investors.
“On this investment mission to London and Frankfurt we will be discussing specific job-creation projects in Ireland with leading global companies in the technology, financial services and manufacturing sectors,” said Minister Bruton. “In keeping with our driving focus on regional job-creation, many of the potential projects being discussed relate to locations outside of Dublin.”
“A key part of the IDA’s new strategy is increasing the focus on Europe as a source market for foreign investment – these investment missions, where companies get the opportunity to speak directly with Government, are an important part of the process of convincing companies to invest in Ireland,” said Shanahan.
