Invest NI Welcomes JTI Legacy Fund for Ballymena

Jul 19, 2016
 

Alastair Hamilton, CEO, Invest Northern Ireland said: “We welcome JTI’s commitment to provide a £5m legacy fund to support job creation and skills development in the Ballymena area."

The change in legislation that precipitated JTI’s decision to close the Lisnafillan facility has impacted significantly on the workers, their families and the wider community. 

This legacy fund will provide a significant resource for the community to help fund job creation and skills projects that will provide opportunities for future employment.
“This legacy fund will provide a significant resource for the community to help fund job creation and skills projects that will provide opportunities for future employment.  Set alongside Invest NI’s existing range of support and advice, this will provide real potential to boost entrepreneurial activity in the region.”
