Enterprise Council report – Innovative and Visionary: Adams

28 November, 2008 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin West Belfast MP Gerry Adams has welcomed the publication this morning of the West Belfast and Greater Shankill Enterprise Council report 'Think Transformation - Development Initiatives for the economic transformation of West Belfast and Greater Shankill.'

Speaking after the launch Mr. Adams said:

"The Enterprise Council has brought forward an innovative and imaginative report which provides a positive vision of West Belfast for the future.

"The next step must be in developing a delivery mechanism which can turn these ideas into realistic projects. That will require practical support from the Executive and government departments.

"Today's announcement must also be seen in the context of yesterday's announcement of a Rapid Transit Network proposal for Belfast, including West Belfast.

These two major proposals and the development of the huge land block between Hannahstown Hill and the Monagh by-pass, mean that there are now three significant projects with the potential to bring in many millions of pounds of investment and jobs, improve the environment for citizens and to transform West Belfast and the city in the years ahead."
