Ó Muilleoir meets Construction Employers’ Federation
Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir met with representatives from the Construction Employers’ Federation.
Speaking after the meeting the Finance Minister said:
“I was delighted to meet the Construction Employers' Federation on this development site, as house building plays an important role in the local construction industry and makes a vital contribution to our local economy.
“It is vital that government continues to work in partnership with the construction industry and I want to build on the excellent work that has already been done in this regard.
“The meeting was a great opportunity to hear firsthand from the industry about the particular challenges they are facing and how we can work productively together over the years ahead.
“Following the EU referendum I want to give my assurance to the industry that I will be working with my Executive colleagues and partners across these islands to act in their best interests.
“The Executive allocation of capital funding, for key infrastructure projects identified in the Fresh Start Agreement will give a degree of certainty and help companies plan ahead.”
