NI Secretary of State and FSB Northern Ireland Policy Chair meet with representatives of Agri-Business

Agri-food firms and industry representatives joined the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, James Brokenshire and his Northern Ireland Business Advisory Group core members, including FSB Northern Ireland Policy Chair, Wilfred Mitchell OBE, for a discussion focused on how the sector’s world class performance in recent years can be protected and expanded. 

 Also joining the meeting was Minister for Exiting the EU Robin Walker, whose first visit to Northern Ireland since being appointed follows Secretary of State for Exiting the EU David Davis’ last month.

 Minister for Exiting the EU Robin Walker said: “The people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union and it’s the duty of the Government to make sure we do just that. The UK is a great country with a bright future and Northern Ireland plays a huge part in its success.

“We’re confident of getting a good deal for the whole country, but to do this we need a UK-wide approach as we prepare for negotiations. That’s why I’m in Northern Ireland today – to hear from the people, groups and businesses that have helped to build Northern Ireland’s success and who will continue to build a brighter, more secure future for the people who live here.”
