Brexit to take centre stage at Newry Business Breakfast

Amidst political flux, impending Brexit negotiations and changes to trade structures, local businesses are being invited to come together and discuss the implications and challenges that lie ahead at a special business breakfast. Hosted by First Trust Bank and in association with the Newry Chamber of Commerce & Trade, the event will take place on Thursday 9th March 2017 at the Newry Conference & Banqueting Centre, Newry. 

John Fahey, a Senior Economist at AIB will provide an economic overview and insight, while Johnny Hanna, Senior partner at audit, tax and advisory firm KPMG, will share his thoughts on how businesses can navigate ongoing uncertainty.

Speaking ahead of the business breakfast, Stephen Comer, First Trust Bank said; “While the economic forecast is for Northern Ireland to avoid recession in 2017 as consumers continue to provide support for economic growth the key issue for both businesses and policy makers is whether our strengths are sufficient to navigate the unchartered waters brought about by Brexit and political changes – both here and further afield. We look forward to discussing these issues with the local business community, Chamber and leading experts.”

First Trust Bank will also be hosting regional business Brexit events in Dungannon and Derry/Londonderry on Wednesday 8th March 2017. To register your interest in attending these or the Newry Business Breakfast, please contact FTB.Marketing@aib.ie
