An Tánaiste yesterday published a Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation Paper, “Building Stronger Business: Responding to Brexit by competing, innovating and trading”. The Paper sets out work underway, and planned, by the Department and its Agencies in response to Brexit. 
 
The Paper is focused on the current needs of companies as many firms are already dealing with the consequences of the Brexit referendum result. The Government says it is providing supports to help make companies more resilient in the face of Brexit and other global challenges. 
 
Speaking yesterday, the Tánaiste said, "Our approach is to minimise risks and maximise opportunities by supporting the growth and resilience of Irish enterprises in the context of Brexit. We are focussing on: deepening national and firm level competitiveness; fostering product, service and process innovation within companies; and working with businesses to diversify their trade with the world. We know some businesses are planning for Brexit but many are not and I would urge all companies to engage with the supports that are available."
