Ireland's inward investment promotion agency, the IDA, is a non-commercial, semi-state body promoting Foreign Direct Investment into Ireland through a wide range of services. We partner with potential and existing investors to help them establish or expand their operations in Ireland.
IDA Ireland’s main objective is to encourage investment into Ireland by foreign-owned companies. Our success is measured by the impact on the Irish economy of FDI and IDA supported companies.
Over the past 60 years IDA Ireland has evolved to become a global force in attracting FDI to Ireland and a key influencer in the development of the Irish economy and its reputation abroad.
IDA Ireland's new five year strategy is based on a policy of attracting investors who are seeking locations for Advanced Manufacturing or office-based activities which depend on highly skilled processes or are involved in high value added activities e.g. ICT, knowledge-based industries and Bio Technology.
The IDA attends many events globally as well as promoting those related to our work. Find out about upcoming and recent events.
