Simon Hamilton will visit Glen Dimplex on 18th June 2014 as part of a new series of events where local businesses are invited to come along and share their views on the economy directly with the Minister at the event which will take place at Glen Dimplex’s facilities. The format of each event will involve an address from the Minister, followed by an open forum for delegates to share their views on the economy directly with the Minister and to find out what the NI Executive can do to help grow the private sector. Guests will also hear the success story of Glen Dimplex followed by a guided tour of the company’s facilities. Launching the initiative, Simon Hamilton said, “I know that many businesses have been through some tough times recently and I want to make sure that, as the economy recovers, we are all ready to make the most of the new opportunities that are emerging. “These events will allow me to hear directly from local business about their views on what is needed to make this happen, to share with them some views on how the public sector can respond innovatively, and most importantly to explore if there are new and better ways of working together from which we can all benefit.” Future events have also been confirmed with Thales in Belfast, The Henry Group in Magherafelt and Terex in Dungannon.
