Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed news that the Almac Group are set to create 1000 new jobs in the north.
The party’s economy spokesperson said:
“Today’s announcement that the Almac Group will create over 1,000 jobs in the north over the next three years is a welcome boost.
“This will help drive money back into our local economy and create good, high-quality jobs.
“The company are expanding their already thriving facilities in the north due to increased demand for their services.
“Delivery of these jobs is a good example of how local companies are benefitting from access to both the EU and British markets through the Protocol.
“Attracting investment and creating jobs is key to our recovery from the pandemic as we begin to rebuild our economy and there is an onus on the DUP economy minister to begin promoting the opportunities of the Protocol in creating jobs.”
