Economy Minister stresses the importance of investing in skills

1 Mins read

Economy Minister Diane Dodds has reiterated the important role skills have to play in rebuilding Northern Ireland’s economy.

The Minister said: “The Executive has benefited from additional funding as a result of the Chancellor’s announcement yesterday. It is important that we grasp this opportunity and invest this money in the right areas to aid our economic recovery.

“I have made no secret of the fact that I wish to see a very significant increase in the level of investment in skills.

“Developing a highly effective skills pipeline is key to our economic future as we lay a strong foundation for our economy post Covid-19.

“Since taking up office in January, and particularly since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have approved a number of skills-based initiatives.

“I will continue to focus on establishing a world-class skills system which is sustainable and boosts opportunities for everyone across Northern Ireland.”
