Apple CEO Tim Cook is to visit Ireland later this month, where he'll be presented with an award by the Taoiseach.
Mr Cook will receive the inaugural IDA Ireland Special Recognition Award at an event in Dublin on Monday 20th January.
He is also due to give an address, followed by a conversation with IDA's Martin Shanahan - with an IDA spokesperson saying it will focus on "Ireland’s available talent and the education system that supports it".
Apple currently employs around 6,000 people in Ireland, with most working at the tech giant's Cork facility.
However, the company has also faced scrutiny for its tax arrangements here.
A two-year investigation by the European Commission concluded in 2016 that the Irish State allowed Apple to pay far less tax than other companies.
The Commission ordered the tech giant to pay over €13 billion in back taxes and interest to Ireland to make up for the shortfall.
As a result of the ruling, Ireland was forced to collect the money from Apple - but the State is currently appealing the decision.
