Economy Minister Diane Dodds with the Chair of Mid Ulster District Council and Paul Coote, Managing Director, PJD Safety Supplies Ltd.

Economy Minister Diane Dodds has today launched the Mid Ulster District Council £1.1million business support programme.

Speaking on a visit to PJD Safety Supplies in Ballygawley, Minister Dodds said: “I want to commend Mid Ulster District Council and Invest Northern Ireland who have worked closely to adapt programme delivery and provide Covid-19 focused support. This funding will help companies adjust to overcome current economic challenges and sustain businesses while they are planning for future recovery and growth in a post Covid-19 economy.

The three-year support package aims to help micro and small businesses in the area recover from the economic impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and sustain and grow employment in more than 600 local firms. Building capacity in key business areas, such as planning, financial management and tendering, innovation, the adoption of new technologies and digital growth, have all been included in the funded programme to help companies sustain and create jobs while competing successfully for new work to increase sales and turnover.”

This project is part funded by Invest Northern Ireland and the European Regional Development Fund under the Investment for Growth and Jobs Northern Ireland (2014-2020) Programme.
