First Minister the Rt. Hon. Arlene Foster is undertaking a series of investment, tourism and legal sector engagements in New York and Washington this week.

The First Minister will meet with a range of potential new investors in New York and will address a Tourism Ireland event. She will also attend a major International Bar Association Conference in Washington where she will be a key speaker.

Speaking ahead of the visit the First Minister Arlene Foster said: “As First Minister, I am getting on with the business of promoting Northern Ireland to a global audience.

“The message I am taking to the US is that Northern Ireland is a great place to live, invest and grow business and I will unashamedly repeat this to a full range of potential new investors.

“I am immensely proud of Northern Ireland and welcome that our tourism offering continues to grow year on year. 2015 was a record year for tourism from the United States and the US remains one of the top four markets for tourism to Northern Ireland.

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to address the major International Bar Association Conference in Washington where I will be telling over 6,000 delegates that legal services is one of the fastest growing sectors of our economy.

“Northern Ireland now has an international and comprehensive legal cluster which includes top firms including Citi, Herbert Smith Freehills, Allen & Overy, Axiom Law and Baker & McKenzie.

“Employing 1,200 people, these global giants have voted with their feet. They have made Northern Ireland their location of choice, having discovered that we offer an unparalleled combination of cost-effectiveness and legal technical excellence.

“I will leave no stone unturned in my efforts to ensure a prosperous future for everyone in Northern Ireland.”
