NI will grow when we take back control of our fishing and secure new trade deals

It’s wonderful to see Northern Ireland going from strength to strength since the EU referendum, with export growth the best in the UK, new businesses hitting a £1m turnover faster than anywhere else in the UK and tourism taking in a record £790 million.

News that a £36m expansion of Kilkeel Harbour is expected to create 1,000 jobs only underlines the overall positive outlook.

I fully expect that after Brexit, when we can take back control of our fishing waters and secure lucrative new trade deals in North America, the region’s ports and exporters will grow all the busier, and the Osborne Treasury’s scaremongering predictions will seem even sillier than they do already.
