18 April, 2012 - by Maeve McLaughlin


Junior Minister Martina Anderson today addressed the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU) biennial delegate conference. 

She was welcomed by the ICTU President, Mr Eugene McGlone, at the two day conference held in Derry which has the theme ‘A better and fairer way’.

Speaking at the event Junior Minister Anderson said:

“I welcome all the delegates of the conference to Derry where they can see all the visible signs of regeneration in the city, such as Ebrington Square and the Peace Bridge.“Building a better future for us all is at the heart of the Executive’s work. Through the draft Investment Strategy we will prioritise infrastructure programmes that will deliver the best return and secure value for money. The Economic Strategy cements the Executive’s commitment to improve economic competitiveness and increase employment and prosperity.

“Through the Programme for Government we plan to grow a sustainable economy and invest in the future; create opportunities, tackle disadvantage and improve health and well being and build a strong and shared community.

“I hope all of those present today have the opportunity to look around Derry to see for themselves the tangible benefits that have been delivered by the work of the Executive. However, we are far from finished. There are still areas that need addressed and we are determined to continue to improve the lives of all people living in the North, working to ensure that everyone here has a better and fairer way.”
