Northern Ireland

Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom. Situated in the north-east of the island of Ireland, it shares a border with the Republic of Ireland.

Northern Ireland has traditionally had an industrial economy, in shipbuilding, rope manufacture and textiles. Most heavy industry has been replaced by services, primarily the public sector.

Tourism plays a big role in the local economy. More recently the economy has benefited from major investment by large multi-national high tech corporations attracted by government subsidies and the skilled workforce.
