InterTradeIreland (ITI) is co-funded by my Department and the Department for the Economy in Northern Ireland.  The funding provided to ITI by my Department since 2016 is set out in the following table.

I provided an additional €1 million in funding for ITI in 2019. This funding has enabled the body to expand its key Brexit services and to provide further support to companies seeking its assistance in preparing for the UK's withdrawal from the European Union.
