CBI comments on death of Martin McGuinness

Martin McGuinness served as Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland and Leader of Sinn Féin in Northern Ireland.

David Gavaghan, CBI Northern Ireland Chair, said:

“It is with great sadness that we learn of Martin McGuinness’ death. His statesmanship as deputy First Minister has been central to the success of the peace process over the last decade. Peace is the foundation stone for improving economic prosperity in our region. Much work remains to be done and his passing comes at a time when we need to rededicate ourselves both to nurturing peace and to creating more prosperity for all our citizens."
