Belfast Chamber has called on candidates in the General Election to "back Belfast" and help the city reach its full potential.
Chief executive Simon Hamilton made the comments as he launched the chamber's Belfast Manifesto, Seven Priorities for a Better Belfast.
The organisation represents more than 450 businesses, from retail to bars and hotels.
The manifesto outlines the group's commitment to help "develop an even more successful Belfast, where greater numbers of people want to live, work, study and visit and where companies choose to invest".
The document calls for government and politicians to support its seven priorities to help the chamber achieve its goal of more jobs, more investment, more growth and improved wellbeing for all Belfast citizens.
