The future of a small business support scheme in Wales has been secured with £44 million extra funding.

The Small and Medium Sized Enterprises Support service, which advises businesses on growth and expansion, will run for at least another five years as part of the Business Wales scheme.

Launched two years ago, the Small and Medium Sized Enterprises Support services offers advice and support on the issues that SME business owners face when trying to expand their business, like access to finance and developing in international markets.
