The Londonderry Chamber of Commerce has congratulated the successful General Election candidates in the North West and urged politicians to make urgent progress in negotiating the best possible outcome in Brexit negotiations.
Chamber chief executive Sinead McLaughlin said:
“The Chamber congratulates the successful candidates, particularly Elisha McCallion in Foyle and also the other MPs from the region, Gregory Campbell and Barry McElduff. We send our thanks to Mark Durkan for his hard work in representing the city and working with the localbusiness community for the last 12 years.
“It is now time to make as much progress as possible in the Brexit negotiations. This means getting Stormont functional onceagain and ensuring that the North West is properly and fully represented to get the best possible deal for Northern Ireland and the border areas in the Brexit negotiations. There is a real dangerthat without Stormont functioning the case to protect the economy of theNorth West will not be heard.”
