‘The latest quarterly InterTradeIreland Business Monitor (April-June 2017) reveals remarkable steadiness in the economy with few signs of direct negative impacts from the prevailing uncertainty and concerns around Brexit. 56 per cent of firms are reporting they are stable, the highest figure since the Quarterly Business Monitor started to ask businesses about their stability and growth in 2011. With the UK voting to leave the EU 12 months ago, the proportion of companies with a plan in place to deal with the potential outcomes of Brexit has remained static at 2 per cent. Alarmingly, this figure only increases to three per cent for those exporting despite 34 per cent stating that they have already experienced a negative impact due to Brexit.’
