Tanaiste & Minister for Enterprise Leo Varadkar thanked RGDATA members for all their efforts to date in delivering essential retail services to communities. The Tanaiste was chairing the Brexit Enterprise Forum (7/10) and he made the comment in response to RGDATA Director General Tara Buckley’s intervention.
Buckley told the meeting that the independent wholesalers were engaged in tremendous work preparing for Brexit and that independent retailers were still focussing on delivering essential retail in a safe way for their staff and customers and ensuring compliance with all the Covid-19 health and safety measures and mandatory face coverings.
The Forum heard updates from all the various Government Departments about getting Ireland Brexit Ready. The Tanaiste and other Government contributors emphasised that despite all the pressures from Covid 19 Irish businesses must also focus on getting Brexit ready over the next weeks.
