On 13 January 2011, the Executive Sub-Committee on the Economy launched its Economic Strategy consultation on the Priorities for Sustainable Growth and Prosperity. The document is intended to be the first stage in a
two-staged consultation process. This first phase seeks to gauge the views of stakeholders on the proposed economic framework, before a second phase consultation which will complete the Economic Strategy by providing actions around the agreed framework. The second consultation process will also reflect the outcome of the UK Government’s consultation process on rebalancing the Northern Ireland economy.

EAG welcomes the opportunity to provide a response to the Economic Strategy framework. This submission reflects the views of EAG Members and is structured to reflect the key issues that we believe need to be addressed before a final framework is agreed, and the Economic Strategy developed.
