NIIRTA Launches Economic 80 Point Plan For Local Councils
The business community needs to wake up to the challenges of the new eleven super-councils.
That was the message from the Northern Ireland Independent Retail Trade Association (NIIRTA) as it launched its manifesto Local First, for the Local Government Elections at the MAC this morning.
The role of local Chambers of Commerce in the fight for economic regeneration was also flagged up in the report.
Speaking at the launch, NIIRTA Chief Executive and author of the report, Glyn Roberts said: “By and large the local business community needs to wake up to the huge challenges and opportunities that the new Councils will offer. They could be the change-makers for economic development, radically new town centres, innovation and urban regeneration.
