The Good Friday agreement
Today the Prime Minister hailed the extraordinary political achievement of the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement and committed to building on its promise to create a better future for Northern Ireland and grow the economy across the UK.
- The Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement left us with an extraordinary legacy to tackle the problems of a divided society and achieve sustained economic growth, and we must give everything we have to continue to deliver that mission.
- That is why, commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Agreement, the Prime Minister argued today that we can fulfil its true legacy with a more prosperous economy and a more united and contented society – with the full force of the UK Government behind the people of Northern Ireland.
- By building on the precious legacy of the Agreement, not only will we protect peace in Northern Ireland but ensure it is one of the best places to start a business, create jobs and attract investment to grow the economy.
