Enterprise minister Arlene Foster has been called upon to locate an international investment conference later this year in Derry.

An investment conference is to be held following the G8 conference in Fermanagh, and the SDLP have called for the Minister to consider holding it in City of Culture.

SDLP Foyle MLA Pat Ramsey said: “I have written to the Minister on the back of her announcement of a major investment conference in the autumn, to ask her to consider holding the event in Derry.  This will further showcase the City and region, and in line with the Fermanagh G8 conference, will contribute to the international reputation of the West and North West.”
