NI ministers promote reduced corporation tax rate in US

Northern Ireland's first and deputy first ministers are visiting the United States where they are promoting a reduced rate of corporation tax.

The tax cut was agreed as part of the Fresh Start deal and is due to take effect in 2018.

It means companies in Northern Ireland will have profits taxed at 12.5% compared to 19% in the rest of the UK.

BBC News NI's Economics and Business Editor John Campbell reports from the US.
