Northern Ireland Task Force launches the second phase of its work
(01 April 2011)
From March 31 to April 1, the members of the European Commission's Northern Ireland Task Force visited Belfast to discuss with the Northern Ireland departments their priorities for the future. This is a second phase in the work of the Task Force which was set up by Commission President José Manuel Barroso in 2007 and is led by Commissioner Johannes Hahn responsible for Regional Policy.
In the first phase, the Task Force took stock of Northern Ireland's economic development amid peace and stability, and pointed out leads for new ways in which the region could boost its modernisation.
