Cabinet Minister Liam Fox attended a private, working dinner with some of Northern Ireland's top business leaders.

Dr Liam Fox, who is now Secretary of State for International Trade, attended the engagement which was hosted by Ulster Bank.

The event, organised by Northern Ireland Chamber of Commerce and Industry, saw business people sharing their experiences of international trade, and discussing Brexit and the forthcoming reduced rate of corporation tax.

Among the guests were Brian McConville of MJM Marine, and DUP MP Sir Jeffrey Donaldson.

During his trip, Dr Fox met with Economy Minister Simon Hamilton, and Invest NI chief executive Alastair Hamilton.

At that meeting, which was held at Invest NI's Belfast headquarters, a range of topics were covered, including discussions around growing export opportunities for Northern Ireland and establishing new UK trading relationships with other countries.
