AS PART OF continuing efforts to attract further investment into Ireland, Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Minister for Finance Michael Noonan will be dining with 25 company executives this evening in Davos — oh, and Bono is popping in as well to help woo the investors.

The U2 frontman will be paying a visit to the World Economic Forum, and is expected to make a speech this evening at the dinner, hosted by IDA Ireland.

CEO Barry O’Leary welcomed this year’s guest, saying that “selling Ireland is a team effort”.

Having international stars like Bono around to promote Ireland as a location for investment helps us greatly.

He added that IDA Ireland is using the summit to target companies who have not already invested in Ireland, and to remind those who have of the benefits.

They will also hold a number of investor meetings with the aim of attracting more companies into the country.

Thousands of business executives, political leaders, and academics are attending the conference in Switzerland, and continues until the 25th of this month.
