Driving Recovery And Sustainable Growth 2021-2024

The global environment in which Ireland competes for foreign direct investment is constantly changing. Ireland’s historic success in winning a far higher share of FDI than warranted by the size of our population and economy reflects the ability of Government, stakeholders and citizens to adapt and capitalise on the opportunities that arose as business models shifted and new growth areas emerged. The forthcoming period will once again be characterised by change and evolution in the global FDI environment, but at an accelerated pace and set against an exceptionally challenging economic backdrop as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. IDA’s Driving Recovery and Sustainable Growth strategy is intended to position the Agency to respond to this changed environment
