The submission focused on the need for structured, regular, and transparent engagement between civic society here and representatives of regional, national or EU bodies. It gave an analysis of the latest proposals to reform the Ireland/Northern Ireland Protocol from the Commisson and the UK Government as well as some further proposals for improved engagement.
