Sinn Féin Assembly candidate for East Derry, Caoimhe Archibald has described as positive a meeting with Causeway Chamber of Commerce.
Dr Archibald said, “Myself and Cathal Ó’hOisín MLA met with representatives of the Causeway Chamber on Friday past for an update on the business and economic situation in the local area.”
“We were pleased to hear that there are some signs of improvement in the local economy, with an increase in footfall in Coleraine town centre and a decrease in the vacancy rate of business properties.
“This is encouraging news along with the improvements taking place in Coleraine Harbour, a project funded by the Coastal Communities Fund and Harbour Commission which also has the potential for job creation.
“A number of other issues were also discussed in relation to concerns for local businesses and future developments in the Causeway Coast & Glens council area.”
