IFA Welcome Agreement Between EU & UK on Protocol/Framework
IFA President Tim Cullinan has welcomed today’s announcement that the EU and UK have agreed on a framework to facilitate trade between the EU, the UK and Northern Ireland.
“While we await the full details of any new arrangements, it is much better to have a negotiated outcome rather than having to resort to unilateral measures,” he said.
“There is already significant co-operation between the farming sectors North and South on the island. Approximately one third of our food exports still go to the UK, so having rules-based trade that preserves the integrity of the Single Market is extremely important for Irish farming,” he said.
