Policy

As well as being Belfast’s biggest city, it is also the driver of our entire region’s economy.  It is home to 30% of NI’s jobs and accounts for 25p in every £1 of rates raised. 

Belfast Chamber wants to see our city reach its full potential not just because it’s good for Belfast’s citizens, but for people right across the region.  Belfast Chamber works with decision makers in City Hall, at Stormont and in Westminster to develop and implement ideas that allows our city to grow, regenerate and become an even better city to live, work, visit, study and socialise in.  As the voice of business in Belfast, Belfast Chamber is active in producing a range of policy papers which are focused on how we believe we can achieve our shared aims of creating more jobs, attracting more investment, achieving more growth and improving wellbeing for all of the citizens of our city and the region it serves.
