The recent Open Championship was a huge success, showcasing the very best of Northern Ireland and demonstrating that the region is more than up to the challenge of hosting such significant global events.

While tourism and investment remain largely devolved matters under the remit of Invest NI, the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, alongside other UK Government Ministers share the ambitions of Invest NI and Tourism NI in promoting Northern Ireland as a place to invest, visit and do business.
