Chambers Ireland welcomes Brexit guarantee of ‘no hard border’ between Ireland and Northern Ireland, following this morning’s announcement that both negotiating teams are ready to move into the second phase of talks
Chambers Ireland Chief Executive Ian Talbot commented,
‘We welcome UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s commitment to upholding the Good Friday Agreement with a guarantee of no hard border on the island of Ireland and congratulate all parties on reaching a successful outcome. The business community particularly welcomes news that that there will be an Irish chapter of trade negotiations going into phase two of the talks. Ensuring that Ireland’s unique circumstances will continue to be recognised as part of the ongoing Brexit negotiations is a remarkable achievement on behalf of the Government.”
Niall Reck, President of Wexford Chamber, added “Great uncertainties remain for businesses. I hope that the second phase talks begin as soon as possible so that when the inevitable complications emerge, they can be addressed early in the process.”
Wexford Chamber will regularly update Members and the wider business community on Brexit over the coming months and will be organising information events in this regard.
