Gordon Milligan, Chair of IoD Northern Ireland responds to the resignation of the First Minister Paul Givan:
“The now likely collapse of the Northern Ireland Executive is the last thing that businesses here could possibly want.”
“Companies thrive on stability which creates the environment necessary to grow and drive the economic prosperity we all strive to deliver for this region.”
“Not only does this damage our reputation on the international stage, it comes at a time when we are all trying to navigate the impact of COVID-19 and the growing cost of living crisis.”
“It is incumbent on political leaders to do what the business community always does – step up to the plate and work together to find a solution. We simply cannot continue to stumble from one political crisis to the next.”
