Businesses in Northern Ireland have called on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to take “swift and decisive action” to address their concerns over Brexit and help restore power-sharing.
The former Foreign Secretary yesterday scored a comfortable victory over leadership rival Jeremy Hunt as Conservative Party members voted for a new leader and resident of 10 Downing Street.
Ann McGregor, chief executive of the Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce, said he needed to address the “deep frustration” of the business community as it faces an uncertain future.
“Industry leaders will look to him for support on business and the economy as we traverse the most significant period of change and uncertainty the UK has faced in a generation,” she said.
“Companies want to see a pro-business approach from the offset.”
And she called on him to come up with a definite plan for Brexit.
