Welsh Cross Party Group Launches Supporting Entrepreneurship Inquiry

The Cross-Party Group on Small Shops has today launched a new Inquiry on how to support entrepreneurs trading on high streets, shopping parades and in rural locations throughout Wales.

The Supporting Entrepreneurship Inquiry will seek evidence on the breadth and depth of the contribution that different types of entrepreneur make to the Welsh economy, looking at how to support these entrepreneurs to grow, invest and secure their long-term future.

The Inquiry is especially relevant in the current climate as thousands of businesses are dealing with increases in their rates bills, changes to their business rate relief and increases in employment costs.

The Inquiry will explore the following key themes:

People: how to equip people with the knowledge, skills and resources needed to start and develop a business.
Places: how to support the vibrancy and viability of the locations where entrepreneurs trade in Wales.
Policy: how policymakers can encourage growth in entrepreneurship and business development.
