US businesses are poised to invest billions of dollars into Northern Ireland if the “Windsor” deal on post-Brexit trading arrangements leads to political stability in the region.

The investment is described as ready-to-go by people with knowledge of the plans, following months of talks led by UK Northern Ireland Secretary Chris Heaton-Harris. However, UK and US officials familiar with the matter said money is only likely to start flowing once the political crisis there has ended. This may require the DUP backing the Windsor deal, and ultimately ending the political standoff at Stormont, Northern Ireland’s legislative assembly.
