Attwood: A City Deal needs advocates not mere facilitators
Cllr Attwood said:
“Yesterday morning’s City Deal event in Ballymena provided great insight into the opportunities that can potentially come from a City Deal for Belfast.
“It is however vital that to secure the £1bn investment, that all partners, including the Northern Ireland Office and Government Departments work both collectively and ambitiously to achieve the deal.
“A City Deal for Belfast will create jobs and boost economic activity. It is an opportunity that we simply cannot let pass us by. That is why we need advocates across the board to fight for this investment, it is not good enough that partners act as mere facilitators.”
