Today, Tuesday 14 June, the ESRI published new research titled Corporate Taxation and Foreign Direct Investment in EU Countries: Policy Implications for Ireland, examining the impact of corporate taxation and other factors on the attractiveness of Ireland and other EU countries to foreign direct investment (FDI). In this context, the extent to which Ireland and the UK are perceived as similar alternatives with respect to factors that determine the location choice of foreign affiliates is also analysed.
Policy Implications for Ireland
The ESRI works towards a national vision of ‘Informed policy for a better Ireland’. This means producing high-quality analysis to provide robust evidence for policymaking, with the goals of research excellence and policy impact.
The ESRI produces research that contributes to understanding economic and social change in the new international context and that informs public policymaking and civil society in Ireland.
