28 November 2013
Business leaders calling for calm in light of the incident at Victoria Square and protests planned for the weekend.
In a statement Linda Brown, Divisional Director of IoD in Northern Ireland, said:
“Incidents like this pay untold damage to the local economy and our reputation abroad.
“As the IoD told Dr Haass in our recent talks, it’s only through a concerted focus on economic issues as the key to unlocking social problems, can we really hope to solve the politics.
“The right of businesses to trade uninterrupted, unthreatened and unharmed is paramount to society’s progression.”
