The amount of foreign direct investment coming to Ireland fell in the first half of the year, but not by as much as in other countries
However foreign investments to Ireland were just 10.7% lower, with the country recieving $75 billion in the six month period.
That is more than the amount received by China ($68 billion) and the US ($62 billion).
The amount of investment coming from OECD countries was down 43% overall, though the level leaving Ireland fell by far more, largely due to some previous investments being reversed or withdrawn.
Outwards investment from Ireland stood at -$15 billion in the half year, compared to $42 billion in the second half of 2019.
Overall the OECD said that earnings on inward investments fell by 23% as firms reinvested less of their earnings than last year.
Meanwhile mergers and acquisitions fell by 11% in advanced economies, with activity remaining subdued in the third quarter of this year.
