The Northern Ireland Independent Retail Trade Association (NIIRTA) has welcomed the publication of Economy 2030, a new draft Industrial Strategy, by the Economy Minister Simon Hamilton.
NIIRTA Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said:
“This is a bold and ambitious draft Industrial Strategy and we look forward to working with the Department for the Economy in its implementation. It is important that it complements the UK Industrial Strategy published earlier this week”
“The Minister is right to support sector growth plans and given the huge contribution the retail sector makes in supporting local jobs and the economy, we are keen to play our part in making Northern Ireland the most innovative and competitive small advanced economy”
