BUSINESS AND CIVIC SOCIETY MAKE URGENT APPEAL TO LOCAL POLITICIANS
During the month of April nineteen years ago, people across Northern Ireland were presented with an amazing agreement which would deliver a path for peace and prosperity in the years ahead. That Agreement won overwhelming support in a referendum one month later. The business community and civic society are united in our gratitude to the UK and Irish governments of that time and of course international support from President Bill Clinton and Senator George Mitchell. Similarly, we recognise that Northern Ireland is indebted to many people from right across society who have transformed communities by putting themselves forward as peacemakers, compromisers and economy builders during the past two decades. Lives have been transformed and a generation of young people have benefited enormously.
