Export Matters

On Monday 7 March 2016, the department published ‘Export Matters’ – enabling the conditions for increasing external sales and exports in Northern Ireland.


The Northern Ireland Economic Strategy clearly identified that the route to economic success would come through a renewed focus on export-led economic growth and that holds true today.

Promoting external sales/exports also remains a key priority for the Programme for Government, 

The Export Matters Action Plan has been developed by the Department in conjunction with Invest NI and IntertradeIreland with the key goals of growing the value of exports and external sales outside NI by 80% by 2025 and increasing the number of Northern Ireland businesses engaged in sales outside Northern Ireland.
