DUP Leader Arlene Foster MLA and East Belfast MP Gavin Robinson met with Bombardier yesterday to discuss recent news that the company plans to sell its Northern Ireland operations.
Speaking after their meeting, Mrs Foster and Mr Robinson said;
“Our meeting with Bombardier was an opportunity to meet them to gain a detailed understanding of their plans for sale, the process around it and confirmation that the firm is and remains an attractive proposition for future growth.
We have undertaken to give support and to use our influence with the Government to support the process. We recognise the strategic, economic and industrial position which Bombardier holds within Northern Ireland and the unique skill of their unrivalled workforce.”
