The Economy Minister today launched her ambitious economic vision which will lead to better jobs with better wages and an improvement in people’s quality of life.
In '10X Economy: An Economic Vision for a decade of innovation' Minister Diane Dodds outlines the steps her Department will take to ensure Northern Ireland is positioned amongst the elite small open economies in the world.
The new vision for the economy has been endorsed by a wide range of business leaders from industry including our CEO Dr Joanne Stuart OBE.
Joanne said, "NITA welcome the ambition of the 10x Economic Vision and the importance of Place within it. Tourism delivers 70% of revenues from visitors coming to Northern Ireland and we will collaborate with the Department to ensure that the tourism economy continues to attract visitors, both leisure and business to our region with our world class attractions, events, experiences and most importantly our people and welcome."
