Newry & Mourne Enterprise Agency was set up in 1983 as a division of Newry and Mourne Co-operative (founded, 1972). It was the first local Enterprise Agency on the island of Ireland. It’s mission is to promote jobs and create wealth in the Newry & Mourne area.

The climate in Newry & Mourne has changed since the early days of the Enterprise Agency. Major retail developments, inward investments and recent changes in political and economic relations within Northern Ireland and between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland have seen the levels of unemployment drop dramatically and a rise in the standard of living in general.
