The Progressive Unionist Party calls for a multiple strategy approach which should include both medium and long term goals across the following sectors:
The Party believes that Northern Ireland needs economic growth so that we can create sustainable jobs that will reduce long-term unemployment and enhance the quality of life. Growth alone will not achieve this, it must be accompanied by development if we are to tackle the problems of the disadvantaged.
The Party will focus on social inclusion and the eradication of deprivation as well as on economic growth. We believe that we must develop the skills base, innovation and the education system if we are to sustain growth and build an environment for investment.
