Investing in Ireland

Investing in Ireland - Crowe Ireland

Ireland offers a combination of a highly educated, skilled and flexible workforce, an advanced infrastructure and a pro-business environment. Furthermore, it has a transparent, common law based legal system and its membership of the EU ensures unrestricted access to EU markets for companies based in Ireland. Ireland remains one of the most welcoming places in the world for international business and foreign direct investment, and it is a great place to invest, do business, work, and live.

Ireland continues to attract a significant level of foreign investment and has experienced strong and consistent growth in a number of key sectors such as:

  • Life sciences
  • Information and communications technologies
  • Consumer and industrial products
  • Financial services

Ireland’s prosperity is a product of its success as a trading nation.

The IMD World Competitiveness 2019 Yearbook, which surveys 63 countries worldwide, ranked Ireland seventh most competitive country.

According to the data, Ireland leads the way globally for investment incentives, the handling of public sector contracts and areas such as image, branding and talent management. It also ranked Ireland third overall for business efficiency – a measure of how innovative, profitable and responsible businesses are in each country.
