Northern Ireland’s future growth prospects as a regional economy are inextricably linked with its ability to grow the size of its export base. The benefits are profuse. Trading internationally provides links to fast growing economies as well as improving the local skills and knowledge base and providing a more attractive environment for Foreign Direct Investment. Where internal demand is weak, as has been the case here for some time now, exports can help accelerate recovery.
