It’s been a difficult and challenging year for Invest NI, as it has for most of us. Kevin Holland joined the organisation as chief executive just a few months before the global pandemic sweeped across the globe. Exports and sales among firms it works with slumped in the last year, while FDI stalled at the beginning of the pandemic. He says Invest NI will “certainly change as a result of the changing environment”. On Brexit, he says it’s too early to say whether businesses are largely seeing a positive or negative outcome as a result of the NI Protocol. But on Northern Ireland’s former silver bullet, reducing corporation tax, he says it’s no longer an active selling point for FDI. But he also says it’s further down the list for company priorities when eyeing Northern Ireland.
