The 10 biggest businesses within the new Mid & East Antrim borough will be the first invitees to a series of Business Stakeholder Engagement Events being hosted by the Mayor.

Bringing details to the Council’s June monthly meeting in Ballymena last week, First Citizen Cllr Billy Ashe said the events, to be held across the borough over the next year, were aimed at building a strong business relationship and supporting employment in Mid & East Antrim, to strengthen business relationships with Council and to discuss future growth and opportunities.

Attendees along with the Mayor and Deputy Mayor, will be chairs of Council’s Community Planning and Economic Growth and Development Communities, and Chief Executive Anne Donaghy.

In her report to councillors on the forthcoming series of events, Mrs Donaghy said Council needed “to ensure that the businesses we have currently in the borough are supported”.
