In light of the recent Brexit referendum decision, a key objective for InterTradeIreland is to ensure that cross-border trade continues to grow and SME benefits are exploited. Cross-border trade in goods and services on the island of Ireland has grown exponentially over the past twenty years and now stands at circa £5bn Sterling or €6bn Euros equivalent. Over this period cross-border trade has proven to be robust recovering strongly from other shocks such as the banking crisis. While local businesses have proven to be resilient, InterTradeIreland will assist SMEs to adjust to any new trading relationships that emerge from Brexit negotiations so that they can continue to avail of these opportunities.
