Reflecting on the Assembly Election campaign, Mr Roberts said, “Looking at all of the main parties manifestos, they reflect a new maturity in their thinking on business and the economy and it is good to see them competing to be as pro-business as possible” “This campaign is the first where social and economic issues have been central and it is a step toward the normalisation of politics in Northern Ireland” “However,  when the new Assembly is reconvened they must hit the ground running and start to deliver on their promises and produce a radical pro-business Programme for Government which sets us toward recovery” ]]>
