Belfast is next growth hot spot

Belfast is the next growth hot spot for retail-led regeneration, Northern Ireland secretary Peter Hain claimed this week.

Speaking at the British Council for Shopping Centres annual conference, he said: "Our vision is for the rebirth of Belfast as a major regional European capital providing the best in retail, office, leisure and city centre living of any of our competitor cities." Visitors spent £260 million in Belfast last year, 80 per cent of which went on leisure and retail services. Hain highlighted potential for retail growth across the province.
