Secretary of State welcomes economy figures published today
Ms Villiers said:
The Northern Ireland economy continues to bounce back, with unemployed claimants falling by 24,000 over the last two years. This good news follows Ulster Bank’s assessment this week that output grew at its fastest rate since October 2014, helping create more jobs. It is essential to stick to the Government’s long-term economic plan to secure jobs, growth and economic security in the years ahead.
