Prime Minister Boris Johnson will be visiting the country on Thursday to outline the first phase of plans for the 100th anniversary of Northern Ireland's creation.
A forum and historical advisory body will work with the government on the anniversary.
Northern Ireland was founded in May 1921 after the partition of Ireland.
The Prime Minister said: "To mark the 100th anniversary of Northern Ireland's founding, it is important that we celebrate the people, culture and traditions of the country and its important contribution to the United Kingdom."
During his visit to Northern Ireland, the Prime Minister will meet with First Secretary Arlene Foster and Deputy First Secretary Michelle O'Neill to discuss how to rebuild the economy.
