"Manage Transition As Smoothly As Possible" says IoD NI Chairman

24 June 2016


In response to today’s result of the EU referendum, Ian Sheppard, Chairman of the Institute of Directors Northern Ireland (IoD NI), said:

“Three quarters of IoD NI members who took part in a survey in March 2016 wanted the UK to remain in the European Union but now that the UK has voted to leave the EU, it is imperative that political leaders manage this transition as smoothly as possible.

“It is now up to our political leaders to negotiate a deal with European leaders which preserves the ability of firms here and across the UK to trade easily with the remaining member states.

“One thing the UK Government must do is to guarantee the right to remain of EU citizens currently working in the UK. Many companies in Northern Ireland have EU nationals employed in key roles and do not want the disruption of losing valued staff.”
