Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
North's economy outperforms rest of UK, official figures show
The economy of Northern Ireland has largely recovered from the hit of the Covid-19, marking the best performance across all UK nations and regions, according to experimental official statistics that point to it prospering under the Northern Ireland protocol.

Economic output in Northern Ireland in the third quarter was only 0.3 per cent below that of the final quarter of 2019, before the pandemic, according to data published by the Office for National Statistics on Monday.

The region performed better than any other in the UK and surpassed the country's overall economic recovery, which fell 2.1 per cent over the same period.

London was the second best performing area, with output 1.8 per cent down on pre-pandemic levels, closely followed by Wales.

In contrast, economic output in the West Midlands was still nearly 10 per cent below pre-pandemic levels.

mmmm- could the Protocol be the main reason for this?
