Commenting on this week’s statement by the Secretary of State on a potential Economic Package linked to progress on a Shared Future, the Northern Ireland Independent Retail Trade Association (NIIRTA) has called for twin track discussions on both issues to move forward. NIIRTA Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said, “NIIRTA has long called for the establishment of Enterprise Zones in Northern Ireland and we are pleased that they are now on the table for discussion between the Government and the NI Executive. “We must also ensure that the devolution of Corporation Tax is included in these on-going discussions. The Shared Future agenda is primarily an economic priority as Northern Ireland’s divided society is bad for business and we only need to look at the lack of private sector investment and unemployment in many interface areas. “Urgent progress on both a new Economic Package and the Shared Future agenda is crucially important and so we would urge twin track all party talks on both issues to move the overall situation forward. Roberts added, “Establishing Enterprise Zones, investing in Infrastructure in our Town Centres and improving access to finance are all vital ingredients in boosting our economy and we would urge all parties to go the extra mile to agree a comprehensive Economic Package.”
