IDA Ireland is backing plans to develop a shipping-finance centre in Dublin, in a bid to emulate the city’s position as an international aviation leasing hub.

In a filing to Dublin City Council, the firm ISSC said it was acting for an unidentified investor planning a shipping services project that might result in more than 3,500 jobs in the capital’s docklands. In a separate filing, IDA said it supported the proposals.
