Ireland’s inward Investment Promotion & Development agency, IDA Ireland is responsible for the attraction and development of foreign investment in Ireland. Over 1,300 overseas companies, including a number of leaders in the online fashion, luxury & ecommerce sectors, have chosen to invest in Ireland and are involved in a wide range of activities including software development, R&D, supply chain, data management, sales and service.
There are many reasons why companies locate themselves in Ireland, but it all starts with positive leadership and policies. Successive governments have developed an open economy and invested heavily to develop Ireland's infrastructure. This has allowed the IDA, a semi-state body, to continue to attract high-performing industries to our shores, even through challenging times. We favour green lights over red tape, which is why we are one of the best countries in the world for ease of doing business (Forbes). New business is welcomed and supported by the flow of talent coming from our schools, universities and abroad, to work for high-performing companies across a range of cutting-edge sectors.
IDA Ireland actively plans for success. As Ireland's inward promotion agency, we partner with established companies, both large and small, working with them every step of the way to achieve a smooth, fast and successful set-up of their operations in Ireland.
