A network of opportunities for Ballymena
Ballymena Borough Council is trying to boost the local economy by targeting its global diaspora.
The Ballymena Global Alumni Network will help bring together ideas, connections and expertise with local people to demonstrate the opportunities for business growth in the area.
The initiative has a business focus and aims to create a global alumni network to market opportunities. Alderman Maurice Mills, chairman of Ballymena's Economic Growth and Development Committee, said: "Ballymena can boast many people of note who work at the highest levels of their chosen careers across the world.
"We know their expertise and connections can assist in helping to develop Ballymena."
