Press release: Executive must work together

25 May 2016


Press Release

25 May 2016

The newly appointed Chairman of IoD Northern Ireland, Ian Sheppard, has welcomed the appointment of the Northern Ireland Executive at Stormont but urged the newly appointed ministers to work together to develop the local economy.

Ian said:

"We want to see our political leaders develop a strong spirit of partnership with business and community leaders that will place Northern Ireland on the global stage with a united message.

"There is no doubt that for Northern Ireland to thrive economically, we must place ourselves in a strong position to compete. Through better governance and further investment, we can turn ourselves into the best Northern Ireland we can be.

"As highlighted in our Manifesto for Better Government, we believe that we must offer an environment supportive of economic growth, and attractive to potential inward investors; as well as encouraging an entrepreneurial public sector to deliver outcomes based on the well-being of citizens."
