N.I Car parts supply could improve following UK/EU agreement

Access to car parts for garages in Northern Ireland could improve, following the deal on trade between the UK and the EU, by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen.

Commenting on the Windsor Framework, SMMT Chief Executive Mike Hawes said: “The new agreement over post Brexit trade between the UK and Northern Ireland is a welcome development if it allows for the streamlined flow of goods, including vehicles and automotive components, between Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the EU single market. We must now build on this renewed trust and momentum to unlock all elements of the TCA and maximise the potential of the deal to benefit both the UK and wider European automotive industry.”

NFDA Chief Executive Sue Robinson added: “We are encouraged to see that the government of the United Kingdom and the European Union have made a breakthrough regarding the Brexit impasse in Northern Ireland. NFDA NI will continue to support franchised dealers in Northern Ireland, liaising with the UK government and the Northern Ireland Assembly to ensure that our members are able to conduct trade effectively between the Northern Ireland, Great Britain and the European Union.”
