The statement says:

"Ministers asked Sponsor Departments to consider InterTradeIreland's staffing complement".

Does that mean more staff and more cost for InterTradeIreland? Given the perilous state of our trade and the threats to it with our main market, would it not be better now to refocus and create an "InterTradeUK"? Would the Minister work for and support such a body?
