Infrastructure investment in Northern Ireland has lagged behind the UK – at least until the Conservatives’ post-election agreement with the Democratic Unionist party: the costs of energy and transport count against it and skilled jobs are precious.

Why do unionists suggest that they get such poor treatment in investment from their own government?

This should be good, if any dare raise their head.........:rolleyes:

So those workers relied on Airbus to help them.

Here, anybody remember this? :D

"And we will be there for you, Northern Ireland".

The words of Donald Trump, the 45th President of the United States of America, to assembled guests at the White House on March 16. This is a significant promise to the people of Northern Ireland. Those who have claimed that Northern Ireland was falling off the US agenda have now the clearest signal that we are not only on the agenda, but that we have a promise of support given to us in public. I don't think we could have expected any better commitment than this.

Airbus help themselves. That was one sweet deal they got.

"If Boeing had let the Canadian minnow alone, after all, the C-Series would probably have sold only 300 or so planes. But now Boeing’s tariffs have destroyed the C-Series’ value and handed it to its rival for free. Airbus wants to sell up to 6,000 of the planes over the next 20 years."

This could be brill for jobs in Belfast unless Airbus moves the Belfast part of the plane to its in house facilities once it takes full control of the plane.

The title of the thread should be"Infrastructure investment in Northern Ireland has lagged behind the rest of the UK."

The six counties need to stay in the EU to maintain such jobs, the brexit sh1t is diverting much needed investment away from them like this one just recently announced.........Apple get go-ahead to build data centre in Athenry - Independent.ie

We focus on the positives -

Our economy grew by 2.4% in the past year with the private sector driving growth and unemployment rate continues to go down.


· The latest published NI unemployment rate was 4.7%. It compares favourably to the European Union (7.7%) rate for October 2017 and Republic of Ireland (6.1% - Sept 17).


· Earnings for full-time employees have increased by over 2% for two years in a row.


· Spending on Research & Development rose by 24% last year to £750 million – an all time high.


· Exports by Northern Ireland companies increased by 12% in the past year.


· Manufacturing sales increased by 6% in the last year and jobs in the sector grew by 1.4%.


· Last year estimated overnight trips to Northern Ireland by external visitors stood at 2.6 million. This is the highest number on record and a 12% increase on 2015.

NI is a backwater economy and those in favour of the union with Britain are firmly to blame.
