Lesley Black and James Kerr report on news in the business world in Northern Ireland.

In this episode of Money Talks Lesley Black and James Kerr take a special look at how Ireland’s biggest electrical manufacturer at the time shrugged of recession in household spending and ask why town twinning has been a bit of a disappointment in business terms and how to rectify this. Lesley reports on the other big news in the financial world was the takeover by the Allied Irish Banks of the TBI in Northern Ireland in 1991 and James Kerr looks at LEDU and how it intends to rethink its strategy after another record year. Finally, the team also meets the man from Japan selling Northern Ireland in Brussels.
