Growth In Manufacturing, But Energy Needs Sorted: Ulster Bank
The Ulster Bank's Chief Economist has outlined the growth in Manufacturing in Northern Ireland but calls on the need for intervention to ensure we achieve our economic ambitions.
In an article in the Belfast Telegraph, Richard Ramsey makes a clear call for cost competitiveness for NI manufacturers as they drive the recovery in our economy.
"Fortunately NI’s manufacturing sector has reversed the trend of falling demand, and a meaningful, broad-based recovery is underway. So, demand is no longer the issue, cost is. If this isn’t addressed, some firms may contemplate taking their business elsewhere."
Richard Ramsey's report is available on the Belfast Telegraph website or on the download below.
