Richard Bruton TD, minister for jobs, enterprise and innovation,, said: “International financial services is a key sector targeted in the Action Plan for Jobs, and in the past 18 months we have implemented a number of changes to support expansion and job-creation in this sector. Over recent months we have seen some good news in this sector, and today’s announcement that one of world’s leading companies in this field is creating an additional 200 jobs in Dublin and Galway is very welcome. The Government will continue to work hard on implementing the necessary changes to ensure that we can see further announcements like this in the near future.”
