125527 - Trade: Northern Ireland (Answered)

Nigel Dodds
To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, what recent discussions she has had with Invest NI about trade and investment in Northern Ireland; and if she will make a statement.

Mr Shailesh Vara

Secretary of State and I met with Invest NI last month to discuss trade and investment in Northern Ireland. We recognise the great potential of Northern Ireland and Ministers in the Northern Ireland Office will continue to use every possible opportunity alongside colleagues from across Government to work closely with Invest NI to promote Northern Ireland as a great place to invest and do business.
