Prime Minister Boris Johnson will host Northern Ireland business leaders at Downing Street tomorrow after they hold their own high-profile event at the House of Commons.

Trade NI, which is made up of Hospitality NI, Retail NI and Manufacturing NI, has invited MPs to a reception at the House of Commons, where they will also launch an economic report.

The delegation will also attend a reception at 10 Downing Street, following an invitation from the Prime Minister.

Businesses from Northern Ireland among the delegation include Danske Bank and Foyle Port - as well as representatives from law firm Eversheds Sutherland.

Representatives from three councils will also travel for the event.

Around 300 people are expected at the House of Commons reception.

Trade NI said it will use the event to stress the need for economic change to be brought about in Northern Ireland.

It's calling for delivery of a clear economic strategy for the province, an increase in productivity of the workforce and a reduction in the regulatory burden on businesses here.

Trade NI will also launch an economic report, and Vision 2030, which it calls its "10-year prosperity plan for Northern Ireland".
