SDLP Foyle MLA Mark H Durkan has welcomed the decision of the Enterprise Trade and Investment (DETI) Committee to visit Derry following the launch of the City of Culture Progamme at 12noon today.
Mr. Durkan said:
I am delighted the chair of the DETI committee, my party colleague Patsy McGlone, has accepted my invitation to visit Derry along with other members of the committee following the launch of today’s City of Culture Programme.
This is a historic moment in the City’s history and 2013 while promising to be a great cultural experience for anyone visiting the area also has the potential to boost local businesses, create jobs and leave a tremendous legacy for people living here.
I have no doubt the committee will receive a warm welcome during their visit and be able to sample first-hand the rich cultural diversity that exists in the City as well as seeing the talent and creativity of its people.
