Ó Muilleoir welcomes Google to Belfast
South Belfast Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has welcomed the news that software Giant Google has partnered with PwC in Belfast to open their first Innovation Lab in Europe.
Mr Ó Muilleoir said:
“I welcome a European first for PwC here with the establishment of a Google lab in their Belfast base. Over recent years, PwC has been transformed into an economic powerhouse with its cloud-based software programmes and teams of international consultants. With Google now in Dublin and Belfast, I look forward to continued commitment by the Californian giant to the island of Ireland."
“This news with its potential to establish Belfast as the hub of immersive technology in Europe is good for Belfast, good for the economy and good for the North’s reputation as a place to do business.
“This development will be a welcome addition to our marketing tool-kit when endeavouring to attract future investment in the expanding technology sector.”
