Angela McGowan, CBI Northern Ireland Director, said:
“Northern Irish businesses are breathing a collective sigh of relief. As the UK moves closer to leaving the EU, the need for a strong voice from Northern Ireland has never been more important. It’s time to reaffirm Northern Ireland’s reputation as a great place to do business.
“After 3 years of under-investment and political stalemate, this bold and ambitious deal is what Northern Ireland needs to get back onto its feet. Commitments made by the UK and Irish governments on infrastructure and an independent fiscal council are very much welcomed.
“CBI Northern Ireland will continue to work with policymakers and bring evidence to the table, so that together we can deliver ambitious solutions to the economic and environmental challenges that we face.”
