Manufacturing Northern Ireland has given a “guarded welcome” the Brexit agreement saying it “removes the risk of a catastrophic no deal” but raises concerns about the administrative and financial burden on the new arrangements that will apply on some trade into Northern Ireland.
If it is approved, expect Northern Ireland business to be looking for substantial help on both points – the paperwork and costs – from London.
