• The UK and EU to conclude a comprehensive Free Trade Agreement without delay that minimizes post-transition frictions and then allows common sense decisions to be taken at the Joint Committee
• Long-term and lasting solutions to be designed and delivered by the Joint Committee to remove friction and to ensures the Protocol impacts as little as possible on the everyday life of communities in Northern Ireland.
• A period of time to adjust to these changes enabling us to implement fully what is required of us.
We want to reaffirm our commitment to making the Northern Ireland Protocol work and we are making our best endeavours to comply but we have neither the technical detail nor the time to do be ready. A No Deal outcome would place Northern Ireland under unbearable and unnecessary strain at a time of crisis. We plead with you to redouble your efforts to reach an agreement.Signed: Banbridge Chamber of Commerce.Bangor Chamber of CommerceBelfast Chamber of CommerceCauseway Chamber of CommerceChartered Institute of Architectural TechniciansConfederation of British Industry NIConstruction Employers FederationDairy Council Northern IrelandFederation of Master BuildersFederation of Small BusinessHospitality UlsterInstitute of Directors Northern IrelandIrish Congress of Trade UnionsLogistics UKLondonderry Chamber of CommerceManufacturing NIMineral Products Association Northern Ireland.Newry and Mourne Co-operative Enterprise AgencyNewry Chamber of Commerce.Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and IndustryNorthern Ireland Council for Voluntary ActionNorthern Ireland Food and Drink AssociationNorthern Ireland Grain Trade AssociationNorthern Ireland Hotels FederationNorthern Ireland Meat ExportersNorthern Ireland Retail ConsortiumNorthern Ireland Tourism AlliancePoultry Industry Federation Northern IrelandRetailNIRoyal Society of Ulster ArchitectsUlster Farmers UnionWomen in Business Northern Ireland
