Alliance Leader David Ford and an Alliance Delegation have met with the Westminster Government’s Business Secretary Vince Cable at Stormont. Alliance organised and hosted the meeting for Northern Ireland business groups with Vince Cable at Stormont on 31 January 2012.
David Ford said: “This was an important and very productive meeting which enabled us to discuss ideas regarding growing our economy at this very difficult time.
“Alliance organised the meeting and it provided an excellent opportunity for leading business groups in Northern Ireland to raise key issues with the Business Secretary.
“We have massive economic potential here and opportunities like this to have Northern Ireland’s voice heard at Westminster Government level are absolutely crucial. The best solutions to economic challenges can be found by consulting with people and groups on the ground to ensure that solutions are tailored to specific needs.”
