    When receruitment is completed by 2022 it will mean Huawei has created at least 310 new jobs in Ireland since 2019.

    The company has also announced plans to invest €80 million in Irish research and development (R&D) over the next two years to support its business in Ireland.

    The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland and Irish Tánaiste & Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar commented: "The news that Huawei will create 110 new jobs is most welcome. The company is creating new jobs at a time when we really need them with so many people out of work.

    "Despite all the current uncertainty and challenges, Ireland continues to attract top class investment from global technology companies. These 110 jobs, which come in addition to the 200 created over the past 15 months, will be accompanied by an €80m investment in Irish research and development. I wish the company the best of luck with this expansion."
