The First and Deputy First Ministers yesterday welcomed Executive agreement on a Racial Equality Strategy 2015-25.

The strategy sets out how government departments will create the conditions and circumstances to tackle racial inequalities, eradicate racism, hate crime and promote good race relations and social cohesion.

Peter Robinson said: “Society in Northern Ireland has become increasingly multicultural and this strategy is our acknowledgement of the positive contribution minority ethnic groups make to our economic, public, political, social and cultural life.”
