London, June 6 (MNN) UK Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, Brandon Lewis, on Sunday announced the appointment of Trevor Ringland as the Special Envoy to the US on Northern Ireland.

Trevor Ringland will be responsible for promoting Northern Ireland’s interests across the US — in the Biden Administration, Congress and within the Irish American community.

He will report to the UK Secretary of State for Northern Ireland and the Prime Minister.

The creation of this new post reflects the UK government’s enduring commitment to the peace, prosperity and stability of Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland Office said.

It will support the government’s vision for Northern Ireland, built on its promotion as an excellent place to live, work and do business.

‘Through this new appointment, the UK government will seek to foster greater dialogue with key US stakeholders on the causes that matter to Northern Ireland and its people, drive inward investment into Northern Ireland and build on the ongoing partnership between the UK and US, which remains vital to safeguarding Northern Ireland’s stability and prosperity.”

As Special Envoy, Ringland will also be tasked to work with US firms and investors with an interest in Northern Ireland to build on established links and support Northern Ireland’s long term economic development.

Ringland will draw on his extensive knowledge of Northern Ireland’s society and political context to support his work in the role, utilising his connections across civic society and the private sector.

Ringland said: “I am honoured to take up this role on behalf of the UK government. I very much look forward to supporting the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland in ensuring the UK government’s policies on Northern Ireland are well represented to US audiences and playing my part in forging deeper political, social and economic ties between our two countries.”
