Northern Ireland’s business prospects have dramatically improved in recent decades. United Kingdom’s smallest economy, once plagued by ethnopolitical conflict and soaring unemployment, is now perceived as a business friendly environment by foreign companies. Benefits of doing business in Northern Ireland include: a stable regulatory environment, a young and skilled workforce, excellent infrastructure, low operating costs (compared to other parts of the UK), and a competitive tax regime (corporate tax rates and R&D tax incentives are amongst the best in the EU). With respect to Northern Ireland business opportunities, key sectors include: agriculture (livestock, dairy, grain, potatoes), a broad range of manufacturing (a move from traditional industries, such as textiles and shipbuilding, towards high-tech and capital-intensive industries such as aerospace, wind and wave turbine production), engineering, telecommunications, information technology, life sciences, construction, financial services, and tourism.
