About Trade NI

Trade NI is an alliance made up of the three largest sectors of industry and the majority of businesses in Northern Ireland - Hospitality Ulster, Manufacturing NI and Retail NI.

Our aim is for politicians and key influencers to understand Northern Ireland’s economic needs and help to reform the policies that are holding us back in our growth. Our central priorities are to;

  • Deliver a clear economic strategy for Northern Ireland

  • Increase productivity of Northern Ireland workforce

  • Reduce the regulatory burden of businesses

  • Increase skills base of workforce

We will be hosting a major ‘Northern Ireland Day’ in the House of Commons in September, where we will pull Northern Ireland into the focus of Ministers and MPs, and launch our economic priorities for Northern Ireland with our document Northern Ireland 2040. Ahead of this event, the alliance launched in Belfast to the key business influencers of the community, where we pledged to work for better policies and opportunities for Northern Ireland.

Trade NI is extending an open invitation for all business leaders in Northern Ireland to join us in the House of Commons on 11 September to present the united front as we push for our key policies to be heard and fulfilled to develop the economy in Northern Ireland.
