The recently appointed US economic envoy to Northern Ireland, Declan Kelly, appears to be responsible for the invitation to the NI First and deputy First Ministers to attend a session of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York next week to deal with investment in NI. As the BBC report notes
Formed in 2005, the Clinton Global Initiative aims to “bring together a carefully selected group of the world’s best minds and most distinguished problem-solvers to focus on practical, effective measures”.
