My Department is in constant dialogue with businesses in Northern Ireland to support them in adapting to new processes. The Northern Ireland Protocol means that there are no checks or controls when trading with the EU.
The Government has published extensive guidance for traders in Northern Ireland and Great Britain, and work is ongoing to ensure businesses are fully aware of the flexibilities and mitigations in place.
We are also backing Northern Ireland’s success with over £1billion of investment to deliver the Trader Support Service, develop new technology, contribute to the PEACE PLUS Programme, and further support businesses and communities as part of the ‘New Deal for Northern Ireland’.
