Northern Ireland evidence paper

The Department for the Economy (DfE) has produced an evidence paper to assist local stakeholders planning to respond to the Department for International Trade (DIT) public consultation into possible future UK free trade agreements (FTAs).

The DfE evidence paper: Northern Ireland International Trade and Investment Patterns aims to assist local stakeholders who are considering responding to the DIT consultations by presenting the wider trade and investment context and providing statistical information on Northern Ireland’s global trade and investment.

In particular, the paper provides specific information on Northern Ireland trade and investment with Australia, New Zealand, the USA and CPTPP countries. It also draws attention to the questions being asked by DIT as part of its consultation.
