Speaking at a ‘MIPIM 2019 Wrap Up’ event at the Belfast Harbour Commissioners’ Office, Suzanne Wylie, Chief Executive, Belfast City Council said: “In 2016, as a council we set an ambitious target of bringing £1billion of investment in regeneration and commercial property development to Belfast. Now, just three years down the line, we’re on course to double that target.

“This £2billion investment figure bears testament to all that our city has to offer. Since the Millennium, we’ve been saying that Belfast is a city on the rise and, today, it’s clear to see how far we’ve progressed and how much regeneration is still taking place. Just look at the number of cranes on the skyline again.

“This volume of regeneration is thanks to strong collaboration between the private and public sectors. And if we want to continue securing investment in Belfast, it’s imperative that we work together to market our compelling proposition, and that we have the industry and technical knowledge to back it up – which is why initiatives like MIPIM are so important.”
