The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation jointly hosted a seminar, Building Stronger Business – Responding to Brexit, with the ESRI and Enterprise Ireland on Friday 6 July 2018 to present the findings of a series of reports on potential impacts of Brexit on issues which include UK Imports used by Irish-based firms, the skills requirements arising from potential impacts of Brexit, firm-level impacts of Brexit and details of Irish-UK trade in services.
Welcoming the research work, the Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation Heather Humphreys TD, said “The research presented today provides a further contribution to the evidence base on the potential impact of Brexit for businesses and the broader economy, and will help inform our ongoing development of mitigation actions. The Government is committed to ensuring the continued growth and resilience of Irish enterprise after Brexit by helping firms to remain competitive. We also remain committed to securing the best possible outcome for Ireland in Brexit negotiations, working as part of the EU27, and in full support of Chief Negotiator, Michel Barnier.”
