‘Promoting regional balance a priority for Sinn Féin in a new Executive’ – Murphy

Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has said working to transform the north west’s economy and deliver regional balance will be a priority in a new Executive.  

Speaking after meeting with local businesses in the north west today, the party’s economy spokesperson said:  

“Sinn Féin is committed to working with others to make politics work.

“In a new Executive, Sinn Féin will focus on the economy.

“We want to drive the local economy, create political and economic stability to continue attracting investment and to create better jobs and opportunities.

“We will prioritise regional balance, work in partnership with local councils, local business, and communities to maximise the potential of the all-Ireland economy.

“That means completing the A5 road, expanding Magee University, supporting the City of Derry Airport and delivering a first-class rail service.

“Fresh leadership in the Department for Economy would have a transformative impact for Derry and the north west.

“Invest NI’s local presence needs to be much stronger with more finance, staffing and clear and meaningful targets that must be delivered on.

“We need locally elected ministers back around the Executive table and working together to seize the huge economic opportunities available to us.

“Sinn Féin is absolutely determined to lead real change and to deliver for workers, families and businesses.”
