Partnership for Belfast

OECD Observer
Page 7 
One important way of strengthening Northern Ireland's economy is through partnership pro-jects to regenerate its cities. On 24-25 June 1999 the OECD's territorial development service (TDS) and the Trade Union Advisory Committee (TUAC) held a high-level seminar in Belfast on Partnerships and Local Development. The seminar emphasised how much had been accomplished in the regeneration of the city over the past decade.
The seminar focused on the activities of Laganside Corporation to redevelop the River Lagan and its banks, with recommendations for economic growth, job creation and social cohesion in the next phases of development in the city centre. The seminar highlighted partnerships and strategies for sustainable development which combine environmental and social objectives.TDS.contact@oecd.org
