US continues to play key role: Finance Minister Ó Muilleoir

8 December, 2016 - by Máirtín Ó Muilleoir


Addressing business leaders in Boston today, Finance Minister Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said the US has a key role to play in continuing to support economic development and the next phase of the peace process.

Speaking at an Irish American Partnership BUSINESS event, the Minister said:

“US support over the past two decades has played a key role in supporting our economy and a successful peace process. The challenge facing the Executive is to continue to build the peace through economic and political progress to deliver the shared and prosperous society we all envisage. I am confident we can do with the continued support of Irish America.

“Over my two day visit to Boston, I will meet key business government and political representatives to urge a fresh start to the mutually beneficial relationship between our people and the diaspora. Boston is at the capital of Irish America. I was proud to sign the sister city agreement with Boston in 2014 when I was first citizen of Belfast. I look forward to meeting with Boston’s outstanding Irish American Mayor Marty Walsh."

During his visit, Minister Ó Muilleoir will meet with the Mayor of Boston Martin J Walsh, Massachusetts Comptroller Thomas G. Shack III Esq, State Treasurer Deborah Goldberg, Senator Michael F Rush and Representative Daniel J Ryan.
