NI comes out on top

NI comes out on top, 48 overseas companies, creating 83 jobs:

Great news for Northern Ireland!  We are known as a relatively small economic region, however most recently we have been punching above our weight when it comes to substantial inward investments!

According to a recent report from UK Trade and Investment, 48 overseas companies have been tempted to Northern Ireland and on average created 83 new jobs.  In total, that amounts to 4,007 jobs for the 2014-2015 year, and is a much better ratio than any other UK region.  As a whole, the UK received £44bn of FDI inflows in 2014.

Minister for Trade and Investment the Rt Hon Lord Maude of Horsham welcomed the report: “These results confirm that we have the right approach. International companies see the strength of the UK as a place to do business. Their commitment to invest in and trust in the UK economy is higher than it has ever been before. The outlook for the UK economy is very positive.”

The city of Belfast and indeed Northern Ireland, is now home to a record number of major investment announcements.  Local companies are rapidly expanding, global companies are arriving on a regular basis.  Thousands of new job opportunities are now available, offering a high quality of work, a healthy quality of life and a stronger work life balance.
