Invest NI strategy plans 40,000 jobs for Northern Ireland by 2021

Job search

Invest NI has pledged to deliver 40,000 jobs to Northern Ireland by 2021.

The BBC reports the commitment comes in the regional development agency’s new strategy, signed off by the Department for the Economy, which it has published today.

The strategy also includes promoting the commitment to cut corporation tax to 12.5%, though Invest NI says it accepts the plan may need to be altered if a new executive is formed and sets a budget and policy priorities.

The BBC adds the introduction of the strategy as planned in 2018 remains uncertain as there needs to be an executive and assembly in place in Northern Ireland.
