FTA welcomes Ulster breakthrough

[ January 13, 2020   //   ]

The Freight Transport Association’s Northern Ireland policy manager Seamus Leheny, has welcomed the news that the province’s administration in Stormont is to sit again. He said it would bring logistics businesses “long-overdue reassurance that the sector’s concerns, and the future of NI trade, can once again be prioritised by government”.

Vital infrastructure spending now needs to go head, after three years of stagnation, “to protect NI’s trading relationships and its complicated, interconnected supply chain”, he added.

He added: “The next months and years could be challenging as we all move into a new trading relationship with the EU, but the FTA and its members stand ready to make the new, ambitious plans from Stormont a reality.”
