I share the Minister’s disappointment that more Northern Ireland firms have not been nominated to the shortlist. However, I hope that the Minister is not, in any way, undermining the value of having such competitions and awards, particularly for innovation, which provides an excellent basis for the development of industry, North and South. Does the Minister agree?
