Mr Barnier visited InterTradeIreland in Newry on Monday afternoon as part of his two day trip to Ireland, engaging with people living in the border area.
Re-Gen Waste Ltd, along with other large employers in the Newry area, engaged in dialogue with Mr Barnier in order that he gained a full understanding of the technical, operational and practical solutions to maintain the all island economy.
The business organisations attending also used the opportunity to stress to Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the need to find a way through the Brexit negotiations which ensures a frictionless border between Northern Ireland and Ireland in the interest of the economy and the thousands of businesses trading across the island of Ireland.
