Invest NI 2012/13 performance in Dungannon

Invest Northern Ireland 2012/13 performance results for the Dungannon District Council Area show that support from the agency promoted almost 600 new jobs in the area.

Mary Gormley, Manager of Invest NI’s western regional office said: “Invest NI has offered over £7 million of support to businesses in the Dungannon DCA which has resulted in almost £36 million of investment commitments and the promotion of 584 new jobs.

“This is a positive performance by Invest NI, particularly as the number of jobs promoted in 2012/13 demonstrated an increase of almost 80 per cent on the previous year.  Moving forward, I would hope that we could build on this performance and to do so we will continue to work in partnership with all stakeholders.

“Invest NI cannot direct investment to specific council areas but we are fully committed to working with local stakeholders to ensure that every region is positively portrayed and can maximise its success in securing investment projects.”
