The NI Chamber has launched a new international division to service businesses in a post-Brexit environment.
Headed by Tanya Anderson, the initiative evolves the business support organisation’s current offering and is supported by A&L Goodbody, Grant Thornton and Queen’s University Belfast.
The division will provide practical business support, expert guidance and the opportunity for peer learning and connections for NI Chamber’s member businesses.
The International Division will also importantly provide expert, practical assistance to members in planning for the potential implications of Brexit.
The Brexit consultancy service is led by NI Chamber and will be delivered by the team at Pinnacle Professional Limited, a consultancy practice led by Robert McConnell and Dr Scott King.
A&L Goodbody partner Mark Thompson said “We are proud to partner with NI Chamber of Commerce & Industry on this new initiative, which comes at a critical time for businesses in Northern Ireland.
“Whilst increasing exports has always been important for the growth of the local economy, the implications of Brexit means it is more crucial than ever to develop our export capabilities.
“Local companies must continue to focus on deepening and diversifying their export base through R&D and innovation.
“As NI Chamber’s International Champion, we look forward to working with local firms to help them understand the many new rules associated with trading in overseas markets as they emerge in the coming months.”
