SDLP MLA for Newry and Armagh Justin McNulty has welcomed the launch of the M1 Corridor project, which aims to promote the potential of the east coast corridor as a great place to invest and do business in.

Speaking after the launch McNulty said, “The Belfast to Dublin economic corridor has always been highlighted as an area of great potential and the initiative launched today highlights the real potential for our region to be the next big economic powerhouse on this island.



“Dublin is booming and Belfast is thriving, however, businesses are finding it increasingly difficult to get access to quality office accommodation or factory space.

“Our region between Newry and Dundalk is ideally placed at the Midpoint of the east coast economic corridor from Belfast to Dublin. We are princely positioned to meet the needs of business but also to meet the needs of people who want an affordable comfortable lifestyle and a good work-life balance,” he insisted.

“This region is already home to global, thriving and growing companies from pharmaceuticals and construction to financial technology and consulting. And we have so much more potential – our region is ideally placed for growth now and into the future.



“Many are excited about the M1 Corridor Project and the potential for growth it presents, especially for us located at the centre of the east coast economic corridor within sixty minutes from Dublin and Belfast and three airports.

“Within that sixty minutes travel time are 2.25 million people residing. That’s a third of this island’s population. We have the talent, the location, the infrastructure and the huge potential to grow.

“This is a small island, with big ambitions. I am delighted those behind this project have the vision to make those ambitions ours in this border region.



McNulty added, “In the weeks and months ahead we don’t know what shape Brexit will take, but however that plays out, this region is stepping up to the plate and shouting out that we’re open for investment and ready to do business.”
