The success of Belfast over the next 25 years is critical to the success of Northern Ireland. The city should be seen as a gateway for trade, employment, services and visitors and a magnet for private sector investment, growth sectors and jobs. This in turn is essential if the people of the region are to enjoy the right quality of life and standards of living, and if the lasting dividends of the Peace Settlement are to be secured and broadly shared.
These will not only benefit the region. Many countries also want to learn from the experience that Belfast and Northern Ireland are now having. There are lessons for many other parts of the world that can be distilled and disseminated as an example of how to capitalise on restored peace.
This freely available publication examines the local development agenda in the city offers lessons from the exceptional circumstances that have shaped the city over the last thirty years and it its remarkable revival over the last decade.
