Agreement at talks is good for our economy
I welcome the agreement that the political parties have arrived at Stormont (News, December 24). The entire business community has been encouraging our political representatives to reach a deal.
An accommodation on key issues was necessary and I am delighted that significant progress has been achieved across a wide range of issues.
I hope this is a sign that all the parties will continue to work collaboratively going forward in the interests of everyone within the community.
This is essential in building confidence in the economy and necessary to building bridges within our community and helping create higher levels of trust, respect and improved relationships.
The announcement that corporation tax will be devolved to the Assembly in early 2015 will help boost confidence within the business community.
