Foreign Direct Investment in Ireland: Policy Implications for Emerging Economies

Abstract

Ireland's success in attracting foreign direct investment (FDI) provides guidance for emerging economies. The key to Ireland's success is its consistency of policy towards FDI. Ireland's success suggests that emerging countries should be proactive in seeking FDI, offer a package of incentives that is enterprise-centred yet is sufficiently selective to build self-sustaining clusters. Policy consistency is important to inward investors and this can be traded off against selectivity and monitoring of performance.
