Throughout this pandemic, it’s been the small businesses and the self-employed who have had our backs. Delivering supplies to the elderly, keeping communities going, and providing that personal service that you just don’t get online or in the big chains.
In Wales, Welsh Labour is delivering for SMEs. We want the everyday, foundational economy to thrive and be at the heart of our recovery from this pandemic. SMEs 4 Labour is an invaluable forum that helps us connect with those businesses that make up the fabric of our high streets, towns and villages. Like Welsh Labour, it believes that working in partnership with business helps everyone get on and succeed. I wish the forum every success as we begin to sketch out the fresh new policy agenda that will help SMEs and the self employed get back on their feet and thrive in the 2020s.
