“Get Back To Work”- Retail NI Call To Political Parties As Talks Begin

As the talks to restore Devolution begin, Retail NI has urged the Governments and political parties to show leadership and secure a deal.

Glyn Roberts, Retail NI Chief Executive said:

“The political parties need to strike a deal and get back to work - that was the clear message of the voters in last week's election. No more excuses”

“Northern Ireland's political leaders need to lead the way with big bold solutions and to take the difficult decisions. Real leaders do not see problems; they seek solutions”

“A restored Assembly and Executive cannot be business as usual. Devolution needs to be radically rebooted and become less about process and more about real delivery for our economy, health service and our education system”

“With much-needed decisions not being made on reform of business rates and infrastructure investment, not addressing an ever-growing skills gap and modernisation of our town centres, Northern Ireland is not just lagging behind the rest of the UK and Ireland, it is in real danger of being left behind internationally”
