Sinn Féin councillor Dermot Nicholl has echoed his party colleague, Martina Anderson MEP’s concern around Brexit.
Cllr. Ncholl said “There is clear concern among the local business community around the British givernments plan for Brexit this is what myself and Martina have continuously heard over the last few months.”
“Everyday I meet with business owners throughout Causeway Coast and Glens borough and the same issues keep arising. Teresa May and her government have decided to hit the public with slogans rather than an actual strategy.”
“None of this is helping the business community, particularly young entrepreneurs who are keen to avail of the opportunities being in the EU and access to EU markets brings.”
“In the midst of all the uncertainty, one thing is certain; the majority of people in the north voted to remain in the EU and that must be respected.
“The British and Irish governments, together with wider civic society, should now work to secure designated special status for the north within the EU to continue to support our business sector and provide a better future for all our people here.”
