  Shannon International Development Consultants (SIDC) established in 2003, harnesses the unique economic development experience and expertise of Ireland's Shannon Free Zone and the Shannon Region and makes it available as a consultancy service to the international development community.

The name Shannon has always been a major force in the West of Ireland and is synonymous with the triumph of innovation over adversity. Many of the economic development concepts and initiatives developed first at Shannon were subsequently applied on a national scale within Ireland, in a wider European context, and worldwide. The world's first duty free shop was established at Shannon Airport in 1947 and the Shannon Free Zone founded in 1959 was the world's first industrial free zone.

Skills developed in the Shannon Region and Shannon Free Zone and further honed on international consultancy assignments are now available through SIDC. Consultancy Services include:

- Free Zone and Special Economic Zone development,
- Industrial and Business Park Development:
- Foreign Direct Investment/ Investment Promotion
- SME Development
- Regional, Rural and Tourism Development and Planning

SIDC has close links with a large number of consultants from the Shannon Region and the wider Irish economy. These consultants have extensive experience in East and Central Europe. Many have also worked throughout Africa; in Asia including the Middle East, Central and South America, and the South Seas on both long and short-term assignments.
