Expert Opinion
The FSB works hard for small businesses in the UK and it is tremendously important that the UK’s entrepreneurs have the opportunity to discuss with leading figures within Westminster their issues.

“2014 will be a year of economic growth and SMEs have a vital role to play in driving future productivity and also job creation.

“There are a multitude of issues facing small firms including access to finance, regulation and also how to take advantage of overseas trade opportunities. The Government has a big role to play here in terms of support and ensuring that future economic policies take into account of the UK’s smaller and ambitious firms.”
