Seán Neeson MLA said: “This invite from Gordon Brown is great news for B9 Shipping and great news for our green economy.
“Alliance has long been a strong advocate for our green economy. We want to see the urgent implementation of a green new deal for Northern Ireland. This event at Downing Street, and the presence of a local company, should act as a catalyst for the Executive to get to work on creating a green road to economic recovery strategy.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to congratulate B9 on their excellent work. They are a genuine example of what innovation and sustainability has the potential to do for our economy.”
