The Powys Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has urged the new Assembly Government to place economic recovery at the top of its priorities.
 
According to FSB polls, small businesses in Wales are making tough decisions including reducing staff and Wales’ businesses are second only to Northern Ireland as the least confident in the UK.
 
The Federation of Small Businesses 2011 Election Manifesto sets out the policies which would support small businesses, which form the vast majority of businesses in Wales.
 
Steve Kaye Powys Branch Chairman, said:
 
“With unemployment up and confidence down in Wales we would urge the new Government to work with us to ensure that small businesses have the support and environment they need to grow and create employment opportunities in Wales. We welcome the inclusion of many of our policies in their own election Manifesto, especially regeneration of town centres and establishment of a Wales Business Crime Unit.
 
“We would also like to see a review of the business support available to small businesses and assurances that the SME Advisory Group, agreed during the previous term, will be central to ensuring small businesses are at the heart of the new Government’s agenda. We look forward to working with all parties in the forthcoming term to ensure that Wales has a truly sustainable economy that supports economic growth.”
