Stream Jobs welcomed

18 July, 2007

Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has welcomed the news that Stream is to create 300 new jobs in Derry with further jobs planned for the future.

Ms Anderson said,

"Stream is one the few success stories in creating employment in the Derry area over the past few years and the news today that the company is to increase its workforce immediately by 300 is not only a boost to the local economy but a vote of confidence in Derry as a centre of technology employment.

"The quality of the work pool available and the record of its existing centre in Derry has no doubt been a major factor in the decision by Stream to expand its operations in Ireland

"I also welcome the decision by Stream to expand its centres into the Waterside area of the city as it is important that the city of Derry grows together and not as two separate identities of the East and West banks of the Foyle.

"While this latest news comes on the back of other job announcements it is still important that we increase our infrastructural development so that we can continue to attract job opportunities into the North West." ENDS
