Ireland wasting no time building strong international links in the post-Brexit world
Published 08/07/2016 | 02:30
Two weeks on from the UK referendum, a lot of dust has yet to settle - above all within the UK itself. Here in Ireland, however, work got quickly under way on shaping the new environment, whereby we can remain at the heart of the EU while also retaining our close links to our British neighbours.
Our priorities are clear as we implement contingency plans across Government and State agencies, summary details of which can be found on our central EU-UK information hub at the Government's Merrion Street website at www.merrionstreet.ie/en/EU-UK.
Above all, we are working harder than ever to ensure that stability and progress in the North is maintained. Our stated aim is to minimise any adverse impacts on our economy and on the free movement of people, goods and services on these islands. We are also working to ensure a strong EU-UK relationship in the future and a well-managed British withdrawal from the EU.
