The Chamber will constructively support early steps to bring certainty to the outlook facing employers. The Chamber looks forward to the UK Government quickly determining its requirements as it negotiates its exit from the EU.
Voice of business
As the voice of businesses with significant employment in the UK and Ireland, the Chamber is concerned about any adverse impact the UK’s decision could have on trade between these Islands. To that end the Chamber will work constructively in support of-
- A comprehensive and quickly concluded trade agreement between the EU and the UK whilst recognising the unique relationship between the UK and Ireland.
- The continuation of the long-established Common Travel Area between Britain, Ireland and Northern Ireland.
- A comprehensive and quickly concluded trade agreement between Ireland and the UK, preserving fully the long established free movement of capital, people, goods and services.
- Delivery by the EU on its commitment to increase the EU’s competitiveness through reduced administrative burdens and compliance costs on business and repealing unnecessary legislation, as well as pursuing an active and ambitious policy for trade.
Trade is important
The Referendum has highlighted the importance of two way trade between Ireland and the United Kingdom. The British Irish Chamber of Commerce commits to proactively assisting businesses on both islands to further increase this trade for the benefit of all.
