These wider policy issues include the discussion of an appropriate strategic growth of businesses in the sector for a region such as Northern Ireland, the effective development and utilisatior of talent, knowledge and skills in the field and strategies for their internationalisation as well as the building of innovative partnerships. Workshops in the afternoon will deal in more detail with key concerns that have merged from the morning debates.
