The Agri-Food sector for both Northern Ireland and Ireland serves as an essential component of the domestic economy and is the largest cross-border trading sector on the island of Ireland. With activity spanning across the supply chain, a high percentage of locally sourced materials and a substantial export market, the Agri-Food sector continues to be a key driver for the overall economy.
At this briefing event Dr Anthony Soares (Deputy Director of the Cross Border Studies) will deliver a presentation on the key findings contained within this recent report which offers a unique snapshot of cross-border activity within the Agri-Food Sector.’ It is envisaged that the core findings of this study will be used to inform future strategic planning for the sector on both sides of the border and between each jurisdiction.
