Well done to SME4Labour for everything that you are doing to raise the profile of the importance of SMEs, and for encouraging debate and fresh thinking about how Labour can best help SMEs to thrive.
In Wales, the Welsh Labour Government recognises the value of our SMEs to our economy. We have proved that Labour is the party of business, having made deliberate choices to make sure that businesses in Wales have access to the best package of coronavirus-related support anywhere in the UK, and viewing them as integral to our economic recovery. For example, unlike their counterparts in England, our SMEs are currently benefitting from another full year of rate relief.
Our SMEs embody the creativity, innovation and ambition that we will need to move forward from the pandemic.
