Martina Anderson in Boston on Trade talks

19 March, 2009 - by Maeve McLaughlin

Martina Anderson MLA (Foyle) has held discussions in Boston with Massachusetts State Treasurer Tim Cahill and other senior Legislators seeking investment in the North West.   Speaking from Boston after the meetings Martina Anderson said:   "I had very worthwhile discussions with Tim Cahill and his Massachusetts Legislative colleagues. It is obvious that there exists a very strong willingness there to consider strenghening ties between the two Cities. I am aware of previous cooperation between the two areas but I believe that with the changed political climate this is an opportune time to build on our friendships and business contacts.   "I spoke to Tim Cahill about the decisions by his New York counterparts, Tom DiNapoli and Bill Thompson to make State and City Pension Fund investment available for projects in the North of Ireland and encouraged him to take a similar approach. I will be keeping contact with him to guage future developments on this and other investment opportunities.   "While in Boston I also met - along with Sinn Féin President, Gerry Adams - outgoing US Peace Envoy Paula Dobrianski and Therese Murray President of Massachusetts State Senate, the First woman to hold this position."
