Message from the First and Deputy First Ministers



Have your say

Hosting the start of the Giro d’Italia, one of the world’s biggest sporting events illustrates just how much Northern Ireland has moved forward in the last number of years.

As a result of Executive decisions we now have a proven track record in organising and delivering world-class sporting and cultural events. There is no doubt the international media coverage generated from the 2014 Grande Partenza will promote tourism and attract foreign direct investment to help grow our local economy.

When the world’s elite cyclists weave through Titanic Quarter, the streets of Belfast, the Causeway Coastal Route and Glens, then Armagh before heading to Dublin, almost 800 million people worldwide will view our beautiful landscapes and scenery.
