North-South and East-West Trade

North-South and East-West Trade
That this Assembly acknowledges the importance of North-South and East-West trade to our local economy; notes that the EU-UK Joint Committee is working to reduce trade barriers, and to prevent the creation of new barriers so that businesses can trade freely within the legal framework agreed by the Westminster parliament and European Commission; further notes the new trading reality as a result of the end of the Brexit transition period; further acknowledges our continued access to the European single market with its 450 million consumers; and calls on the Executive to develop an overarching economic strategy, including the establishment of an Executive Sub-Committee on the Economy, to give a clear vision and direction to our representative agencies, including Invest NI, InterTradeIreland, Northern Ireland Co-operation Overseas, Northern Ireland Executive Office in Brussels, and the Northern Ireland Bureaux in the United States of America, Canada, and China.
