Last year we held over 270 intergovernmental ministerial meetings bringing together Government and Devolved Administration colleagues.

I was pleased that the Deputy First Minister noted in his letter the positive collaboration between our officials in delivering Green Freeports and City Region and Growth Deals as an example of good intergovernmental relations.

My ministerial colleagues and I will continue working closely with the devolved administrations.
