DETI Minister Arlene Foster makes her contribution to the Union 2021 series today. Following the biblical and reaganite theme of a shining city on the hill, she argues that:
"Our task for 2021 and beyond is to build a new shining city on the hill. A city built on the values of excellence, enterprise, family, limited government and tolerance."
She argues that:
"The idea of the new city is an inclusive one. It is an idea that a credible and sustainable broad church could be built around. It can create space for Unionism to adopt new approaches. The human and financial resources of Unionism can be focused on delivering a positive vision for Unionism and Northern Ireland rather than back-biting and sniping."
