Businesses more interested in achieving the right outcome
In anticipation of tomorrow’s statement from the UK Government
Ann McGregor, Chief Executive of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said:
“For the businesses of Northern Ireland, the most important thing to have is clarity, so firms can plan ahead with confidence. As the UK government publishes its position paper, businesses are more interested in achieving the right outcome, rather than the process itself.
“We welcome the commitments from all sides to see no return of a hard border to the island of Ireland, and want to ensure that this promise is delivered on by the UK government. The free movement of people and goods across the border are essential to the success of Northern Ireland’s economy, and we look forward to engaging with all parties to ensure that aim is achieved.”
