Northern Ireland faces cross-border trade challenges after Brexit

Brexit is now a reality, but as the transition period gets under way to negotiate the future trading relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union, the situation in Northern Ireland presents an enormous challenge.
Northern Ireland will remain part of the UK customs territory, but it will also continue to align with the EU on specific trade regulations and follow EU customs rules. And many businesses which rely on cross-border trade are worried about how that will work.

  • In This Story: Ireland

    Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

    Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

    The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

    A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
