Foster opens new NI-CO headquarters

Enterprise, Trade and Investment Minister Arlene Foster today officially opened the new headquarters of Northern Ireland Cooperation Overseas (NI-CO).

NI-CO promotes the services, skills and expertise of Northern Ireland overseas and has successfully delivered over 600 training and institutional capacity building projects in 77 countries. Over the last 12 months the organisation has been involved projects in Europe, Asia, North Africa, Caribbean and Middle East.

Speaking at NI-CO’s new headquarters on the Belfast Gasworks site, Arlene Foster said: “NI-CO continues to play an important ambassadorial role in showcasing our vast reservoir of expertise across the globe, helping to deliver cutting edge initiatives and programmes that enhance lives across the developing world.

“For example, in Burma NI-CO has just started work on a €9.5 million EU flagship project which aims to bring stability to a country plagued by conflict, while in Jordan the company has recently embarked on a large social care programme to tackle discrimination and support vulnerable families.”

With 24 full time staff at its Belfast headquarters and over 120 field staff in project offices overseas, NI-CO remains at the cutting edge of sustainable development, delivering multi-lateral and bi-lateral projects and grant programmes in Europe and beyond.
