This weekend, we'll gather for our annual party conference.

0:00:130:00:16

As we do so, we'll look back with immense pride

0:00:160:00:19

at the many highlights in Northern Ireland since Conference last met.

0:00:190:00:24

One highlight has been the opening of this world-class building,

0:00:240:00:27

with record visitor numbers from outside the Province.

0:00:270:00:31

It has surpassed every target.

0:00:310:00:33

Another highlight was Royal Portrush hosting the 2012 Irish Open.

0:00:330:00:38

Such was its success,

0:00:380:00:39

we're hoping to bring the British Open to County Antrim.

0:00:390:00:42

Only a few months ago,

0:00:420:00:44

Northern Ireland welcomed Her Majesty The Queen

0:00:440:00:46

as part of the Jubilee celebrations.

0:00:460:00:48

Seeing Stormont lined with tens of thousands was an unforgettable sight.

0:00:480:00:54

We were proud to support Her Majesty's dedicated public service.

0:00:540:00:57

In September, we marked the centenary of the Ulster Covenant.

0:00:570:01:01

We remembered a previous generation,

0:01:010:01:04

who led the foundation for the state of Northern Ireland.

0:01:040:01:08

Our forefathers had a vision of a shared society.

0:01:080:01:11

It was fitting to mark the centenary at a time

0:01:110:01:14

when support for the union has never been greater.

0:01:140:01:16

I want to build on that support and make Northern Ireland

0:01:160:01:19

the very best part of the United Kingdom

0:01:190:01:21

to start a business or raise a family. That's my vision.

0:01:210:01:25

We face many challenges, not least the economy.

0:01:250:01:29

I know many people are hurting.

0:01:290:01:31

Whether in Stormont, Westminster, Brussels or in local government,

0:01:310:01:35

all our elected representatives

0:01:350:01:37

are working to help hard-pressed households.

0:01:370:01:39

We have said no to water charges,

0:01:390:01:41

delivered free public transport for the elderly,

0:01:410:01:44

and we're keeping rates low.

0:01:440:01:46

We're supporting local businesses and we're attracting new companies.

0:01:460:01:50

I've just returned from China,

0:01:500:01:52

where we were able to help local companies start exporting

0:01:520:01:55

into the Chinese market.

0:01:550:01:57

Another focus of our conference is helping disadvantaged communities.

0:01:590:02:03

As Northern Ireland moves forward, no-one should be left behind.

0:02:030:02:07

Through the Social Investment Fund,

0:02:070:02:09

the Executive is forming partnerships with local communities.

0:02:090:02:13

To succeed will require all of us to work together.

0:02:130:02:17

And rather than party-political bickering,

0:02:170:02:20

I want to work with the other parties to secure better schools

0:02:200:02:23

and hospitals and better services for our people.

0:02:230:02:26

I know there's a lot to do, but by working together

0:02:280:02:31

we can restore Northern Ireland to its best.

0:02:310:02:34

If you're unable to join with us in La Mon this weekend,

0:02:340:02:37

I hope you can still support our vision for Northern Ireland.
