Minister Murphy was speaking at a virtual conference where the report was published.



He said, “I want to commend the eight councils from the North and South for coming together to produce this landmark report.

“The report shows that by operating and marketing itself as a single economic unit, the Corridor can galvanise domestic growth and attract FDI.

“It is important that the Corridor drives balanced economic growth across the island.



“For example, a high-speed Belfast to Dublin train should be part of an all-Ireland rail network that includes Derry, Cork, and Limerick.

“This report highlights tremendous opportunities.

He added, “An action plan is needed so that the Corridor can form part of an investment-led recovery from Covid and Brexit.”
