“I very much welcome the findings of the latest NI Chamber and BDO Quarterly Economic Survey. The report shows that, despite significant continuing pressures, confidence is high amongst NI businesses, with most expecting to grow in 2022 and recruiting new staff. This is testament to the resilience and innovation of our local business community.

“My Department’s Economic Recovery Action Plan has played a key role in helping businesses sustain, recover and flourish during the pandemic. The ERAP funded a range of support schemes, including the High Street Scheme that injected over £136million into our retail and service sectors, as well as grant schemes for businesses and funded training places to help people upskill for the evolving jobs market.

“I look forward to a positive 2022 for the NI business community.”
