Aurion Learning was recently recognised as an 'InterTradeIreland Business Ambassador' at a special ceremony was held at Parliament Buildings, Stormont and hosted by Minister for Enterprise Trade and Investment, Arlene Foster.
In total 35 companies were nominated as business ambassadors because they had successfully embraced innovation, developed new markets or secured venture capital through support from cross-border agency InterTradeIreland. The companies defied the downturn and attracted local and foreign investment to prove Northern Ireland’s private sector can compete on a global scale.
One hundred and thirty invited guests including MLAs, heard Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster recognise the thirty five ambassador companies.
Speaking at the event, the Minister said: “I am extremely heartened by the shining examples of enterprise and innovation that are represented by the companies here today. Stimulating enterprise and supporting businesses, particularly in these difficult times - remains a constant focus for me and my Department. Our future prosperity depends on our ability to increase, and sustain, a high value-added, internationally competitive, export-led economy and I am encouraged by contribution made by both InterTradeIreland and the companies here today in striving to achieve this goal.”
