Sinn Fein will promote Belfast rather than Dublin as an alternative destination for foreign direct investment after the border poll is passed.
Sinn Fein will create a special Belfast Economic Develop Zone (CFEB). Generous tax incentives will be made available to property development companies which are prepared to invest in high quality technologically advanced office blocks in the CFEB designed to attract companies operating in the technology and finance sectors. Additional financial incentives like those created to promote the Shannon Development Zone and the International Financial Services Center will be offered to companies willing to locate in the CFEB. The existing favourable tax treatment offered to multinationals in the South will of course be extended to the North.
The strategy is designed to persuade soft Unionists to vote in favour of a United Ireland by offering an opportunity for rapid economic development, an opportunity that will never be available under the Union. The counties of Antrim and Down will benefit most and that is where most Unionists live. The policy will also help take the pressure off Dublin and its dormitory counties which are becoming massively over crowded and unlivable.
There is no question but that Unionists will be better of in a United Ireland. The average price of a house in Dublin is 325,671. The average price of a house in Belfast is 139,317. QED.
SF have been in Stormont for years. Have they not promoted Belfast as a location for FDI before? :roll:
