Ireland named best country for high-value FDI for sixth year in a row

Ireland has been named the best country in the world for attracting high-value foreign direct investments for the sixth year in a row.

IBM’s 2017 Global Locations Trends report says Ireland continues to lead on value coming top of a list that also includes Denmark, Singapore, the Netherlands, Hungary, Sweden, Japan, Costa Rica, Switzerland and Hong Kong.

“International competition for investment has never been more intense,” said Martin Shanahan, chief executive of IDA Ireland. “Ireland being named as the best country for high-value FDI for six years in a row is excellent news and will assist us greatly when making the case for Ireland in boardrooms across the world.”

According to the report, global foreign direct investment (FDI) levels increased significantly last year with the numbers of jobs created as a result rising by 10 per cent, its strongest level in a decade.
