The private and public sectors in the North East of Northern Ireland have joined together to try and stimulate the economy there.

Impact North East will see a week-long series of events and workshops starting on Monday September 26 at various venues across the region.

The events, which include seminars and workshops, will cover many of the current key issues in business such as exporting and business development.

Impact North East is being supported by Ulster Bank, Invest Northern Ireland, Ballymena Borough Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Ballymena Council Economic Development Unit and Northern Regional College, with events and seminars hosted by Intertrade Ireland, DEL, the Local Enterprise Agencies in Antrim, Ballymena, Larne and Carrickfergus among others.

"We all recognise the pivotal role local businesses have to play in the long-term recovery and growth of the economy," said Raymond Ruck, President of the Ballymena Borough Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

"By bringing together various elements of our expertise as Impact North East we can offer a full range of practical help and advice and show businesses that there is support available to them.

"We have events on exporting, networking business development, business efficiency and technology, all the hot topics in business right now."
