A summary of the inward investment projects,
jobs promoted, created and safeguarded, Investment and IDB assistance

|Total Investment (£m)||533
|IDB Assistance (£m)||164

Note: Build up of job creations takes some two-three
years and thus only some of the jobs relating to projects in the
last couple of years will have been created by March 1999.
Since April 1995, one of IDB's TSN targets each year has
been for 75 per cent of all first time inward investment projects
to be located in or adjacent to (ie close proximity to) TSN areas.
Performance is shown in Table 2 below.
