Victoria Hewson writes for City AM

Victoria Hewson, IEA Head of Regulatory Affairs, has written for City AM on the damaging impact that the Northern Ireland Protocol, in its current state, is having on Northern Ireland’s economy and on the Good Friday Agreement, which the Protocol was designed to protect.
