Mr. Martin:The 35 county and city enterprise boards, CEBs, are charged with the development of indigenous domestic enterprises employing up to ten people. Leitrim County Enterprise Board is actively involved in the economic and social development of the county and continues to be proactive in ensuring that available funds are targeted to maximize entrepreneurial development throughout 2005.
Data on the net number of jobs created by the CEBs is compiled across all sectors on an annual basis only. From 2000 to the end of May 2005, Leitrim CEB approved €1.662 million in grant assistance, which has assisted in the creation of 240 jobs, 142 of which are in the manufacturing sector and 98 of which are in local services.
