"It was a pleasure meeting you in Monaco. I was deeply impressed by your presentations to the conference and very proud that you represented the UK so ably. It would be good to keep in touch as I would like to keep you apprised of our peace-building work, including the development of social enterprises in deprived communities in Northern Ireland and in other conflict zones. It would be fantastic to have you visit my constituency some time and see the progress that is being made in rebuilding Northern Ireland as we emerge from the dark years of the past. In the meantime I wish you continued success in all that you do and trust our paths will cross again in the near future."
J Donaldson, MP for Northern Ireland
