EU Referendum

As we all begin to analyse the EU Referendum result and its impact on business and the Northern Ireland economy, be reassured that, regardless of the environment we might find ourselves in, Invest NI will continue to support you, and your business, in the best possible way.


Invest Northern Ireland will:

  • Closely monitor the developments following the EU Referendum.
  • Work with our customers, businesses, stakeholders, and economic development partners to ensure your voices are heard as negotiations commence.
  • Respond quickly and decisively to deliver a positive outcome for the Northern Ireland business community in the emerging economic landscape.
  • Work in key markets to drive forward our plans for foreign direct investment into Northern Ireland based on our talent, our tax and our value proposition.

To ensure Northern Ireland's interests are protected and advanced, and to maximise the benefits to Northern Ireland as part of any new arrangements with the EU, the First and deputy First Ministers have asked Invest NI to establish a Business Liaison Group to consider the potential implications on business, and identify future challenges and opportunities. The first meeting of this Group took place on 21 July 2016.

Read the statement from our Chief Executive, Alastair Hamilton following the EU Referendum result.
