In response to the statement by the First and Deputy First Minister about new NI business grants in light COVID-19, Angela McGowan, CBI NI Director, said:
“These new grant schemes from the NI Executive will provide access to much needed cash, but only for some businesses. What’s really important now is the speed and simplicity in which money can be delivered on the ground.
“NI businesses of all sizes and sectors are facing unprecedented challenges. The Executive need to respond promptly with a comprehensive package for those most in need as the COVID-19 situation evolves.”
