"Jobs announcement welcome" - Anderson
Sinn Fein MLA Martina Anderson has welcomed the announcement that Waterford-based firm Rigney Dolphin is to create 300 jobs in Derry.
Martina Anderson said:
"I have been quite critical in the past of Invest NI's role in the north west and in Derry in particular, and rightly so, but I do acknowledge the role they have played in bringing about this announcement.
"This will bring 300 jobs to the city, and that is very welcome, particularly in a week when we hear that unemployment across the North is continuing to rise.
“I continue to work with private and public investors both here and internationally to market our city as a good place to do business. We have a huge degree of potential here particularly in terms of our highly-skilled young people and I am hopeful of further such announcements in the future in spite of the economic recession.”
