Regional Economic Imbalance

Regional Economic Imbalance
That this Assembly expresses concern at the high levels of regional economic imbalance, as evidenced by high levels of long term unemployment and economic inactivity in North and West Belfast, west of the Bann and along the border corridor; welcomes the commitment in the Programme for Government 2011-2015 to address regional imbalance, and the establishment of the Ministerial Sub Group on Regional Opportunities; recognises the role that the availability of property, skills, appropriate infrastructure and telecommunications can play in making areas magnets of attraction for investment; acknowledges the desire of local government, political, community and business leaders in areas of high unemployment to work in partnership with government to attract greater investment and prosperity; and calls for the inclusion of sub-regional job creation targets in the next Programme for Government.
