“Our continued access to the EU single market as well as the British market has created opportunities for new investment and jobs.

“Those in political unionism who continue to rail against the protocol are ignoring these opportunities for our manufacturers, our retailers, businesses and workers.



“Businesses continue to call for the operation of the protocol to be made easier and for more focus on the opportunities.

“We now need the British government to genuinely engage in negotiations to find solutions to provide certainty and stability for business and wider society here.”
