Retail NI has hosted the Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss, at one of its members, Greens of Lisburn, to discuss the NI Protocol.

Speaking after the meeting, Retail NI Chief Executive Glyn Roberts said: “I was encouraged with the meeting and hopeful that a deal to resolve the challenges around the NI Protocol is achievable.

“At the meeting with the Foreign Secretary, we presented a number of case studies illustrating the problems local independent retailers are experiencing trading with GB based suppliers as result of the NI Protocol.

“It is vital this issue needs to be resolved to ensure that consumers are given the full product range in Northern Ireland. We need a long-term sustainable deal which ensures stability, certainty and affordability for the broader business community in Northern Ireland”

“Continuing to ensure full access to the EU single market is essential, as part of any deal”
