Business, What's On

SDLP Slieve Gullion Councillor Pete Byrne has welcomed Newry Mourne and Down District Council’s plans for a cross border conference on Brexit to be held at the Carrickdale Hotel on 13 March.

Brexit: The Future for Border Businesses organised in partnership with Louth County Council will address the future shape of economic co-operation as well as providing practical advice to local business.



Speaking to Newry Times, Councillor Byrne said, “As the Brexit deadline fast approaches, this cross border effort aims to prepare local businesses for the future.

“IntertradeIreland’s Business Monitor has found that businesses who trade across the border are less likely to report growth.



“This is a huge challenge for the local economy and is why this conference is so important for local businesses,” he insisted.

“Evidence shows that the impact of Brexit will fall disproportionately on the Border Region and within that on a number of sectors such as SME’s which are predominant along the Border Corridor.

“We must support businesses in preparing for Brexit, including providing advice on tariffs and new customs arrangements which will be provided on the day.



The local Councillor added, “Border Councils are committed to supporting local business owners and I would urge everyone to attend on the 13 March.”
