Go to release: Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland 2015
Today (3rd of May 2017), the CSO publishes Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland 2015. Christopher Sibley, Senior Statistician explained: “This publication presents experimental research which adds value to pre-existing Foreign Direct Investment statistics and has been created in response to the large increase in Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland in 2015. As a result of this increase, when measured in terms of FDI, Ireland became one of the most globalised countries in the world.”
Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland contains a number of indicators which assess the impact of FDI in Ireland. This publication uses data from the CSO Business Register, the Balance of Payments surveys and administrative data sources. It presents indicative figures for the return on FDI, FDI associated employment and average FDI wages. It also provides an estimate of Greenfield FDI and develops the context for Ireland’s quarterly FDI figures.
