Important role: President-Elect Joe Biden

US President-Elect Joe Biden could have an important role to play in helping business recovery in Northern Ireland.

When he is installed as the new President of the USA, he can be expected to continue a close interest in what happens in both the British and Irish economies.

Already, he is on record as having a strong personal interest in the protection of the new arrangements for Northern Ireland after the UK leaves the EU. The complex arrangements to avoid an Irish economic border have yet to become fully transparent but the American political administration wants to protect the protocol as agreed in the Withdrawal Agreement.
